Doing your literature search
This playlist of three videos shows you how to prepare for and perform a literature search. The first video introduces literature searches and their role. The second video covers using the search operators AND and OR to create a search statement, whilst the third one explains the role of wildcards and truncation in constructing a comprehensive search. This information is also available as a written guide to Literature searching. We also have a guide to Effective database searching.
