Time: 2:30- 4:30 (+ pre-class work)

Location: Online (Quercus + Blackboard Collaborate)

This workshop follows a flipped-classroom model, which means there is pre-class work (10-20min) that is required to be completed before joining us online for class. This pre-class work will be available in Quercus.

Learning Objectives (pre-class work and online class). Building on the structured approach we practiced in Part 1, in this hands-on workshop students will:

  • Review Medline strategy from Part 1 and prepare it for translation
  • Delve deeper into the advanced features of interfaces and databases which allow for editing and refining a search strategy
  • Translate and execute structured search strategies using different databases, including OVID Embase, and Ebsco CINAHL
  • Prepare database search strategies and compose search methods, such that they can be repeated and to ensure proper reporting

Expectations of Participants:

  • Join the Quercus site (link will be provided after registration in July)
  • Complete the pre-class survey (in Quercus)
  • Complete the pre-class work (in Quercus)
  • Attend the live class ready to participate in discussions and activities (BB Collaborate)
  • Complete the post-class evaluation (in Quercus)

Instructors: Kaitlin Fuller, MLIS; Mikaela Gray, MI; Glyneva Bradley-Ridout, MI
