Library Workshop - Date to be announced

The aim of this workshop is to learn how to find relevant research papers for your PHTH 516 assignment and to use the Vancouver Style for your references.  For this we will be using Medline (Ovid) for efficient and effective searching and Zotero for citation management. These skills will help you succeed in other courses (especially PHTH 552) and into your professional practice.

To make best use of this opportunity, bring your assignment  topic, questions about searches you have tried, and any papers you have already found. 

Our guide on the side with Medline (Ovid) will prepare you for the workshop.  If you have time (~15 min), check out the following modules of this MEDLINE GUIDED EXERCISE and review the following modules.  You can also use the Build Your Own section to guide your search:

Citing Sources and Copyright

Citing your references

Citation management tools and apps allow users to create personal citation databases by importing references from databases and catalogues.  The references can be organized into categories, or libraries, and  used to quickly add in text citations and create bibliographies or reference lists. 

Examples of citation management tools: Endnote, Mendeley and Zotero.
