Research Productivity Workshop Series

Literature Searching in the Hard Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

Workshop Abstract: Google Scholar is one of the most popular research databases, but it is not sufficient when you are seeking comprehensive field-specific literature. This workshop will focus on two key STEM databases—PubMed, which is an essential database for medical literature, and SciFinder, which is equally important for chemistry and biochemistry. The workshop will demonstrate both generalizable search strategies and those that are unique to PubMed and SciFinder. 

Workshop Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use the databases, such as SciFinder and PubMed, that are key conduits into the scientific literature 
  • Use features of databases to identify relevant articles and other research 
  • Use Google Scholar effectively as a searching tool for scientific/medical literature 

 

Tuesday, February 16 2:15-3:00 via Zoom
