Literature Reviews and Database Searching for Life Sciences

Literature Reviews and Database Searching for Life Sciences

You’ve been assigned to write a literature review...but how do you get started? What kinds of literature reviews are there? Where should you search? How do you know what search terms to use? Learn the answers to these questions and more in this workshop. By the end of this session, you’ll be able to 

  • Identify the type of literature review to be conducted

  • Find relevant databases to search in the life sciences

  • Create effective search strategies

This workshop will focus on research in the life sciences. Other discipline-specific workshops will be offered; see other options on the library calendar.
