Objective:
To provide regular searchers with an overview of the interface, features and functionality of The Cochrane Library
Description:
This workshop is designed for regular searchers of The Cochrane Library. It will provide a general overview of the interface, features and functionality followed by a detailed hands-on session, including exercises, searching The Cochrane Library online via www.thecochranelibrary.com. The workshop will provide participants with the understanding of The Cochrane Library search engine behaviours including Boolean and proximity operators, Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), search strategies, search history, citation export and alerting services. Users will also gain experience in using reference linking via CrossRef and PubMed - an initiative to enable users to click on a reference in The Cochrane Library and be taken directly to the cited material.
