Did you know that many of the educational sessions offered by your Levy Librarians are recorded and available on our YouTube channel? Whether you can’t make the live session or just need a quick refresh on a topic, these videos are available on-demand to help you navigate library resources & further your research!
Check out these three videos:
Review Types: Selecting the Right Review Methodology for Your Research Question
Are you overwhelmed with the sheer amount of review types out there in the research literature? Don't understand the difference between systematic and scoping reviews? Recently heard of integrative reviews but are clueless as to what they entail? Join Librarian Carrie Levinson for a 60-minute session on the most popular review types, including literature/narrative, systematic, scoping, integrative, and rapid reviews. Each review type is defined and differentiated from the rest so that you can determine which review is most appropriate for your topic.
Searching the New PubMed
Launched in 2020, the redesigned PubMed has many features that even experienced PubMed searches may benefit from exploring! Join Librarian Lily Martin as she introduces the new display, navigation, and output features now available. The session then goes beyond new features to provide a refresher on PubMed best practices, including searching and working with search results.
How to Build a Search
Beginning with an information need and concluding with a comprehensive search query, this quick 30-minute session will give you the tools you need to create an effective search strategy. While we focus on PubMed, the session is designed so that the skills learned may be used on any bibliographic database or search engine. Librarian Samantha Walsh goes over Boolean search operators (AND, OR, NOT), parentheses, asterisks, quotation marks, and using the Search Builder on PubMed's advanced search page to build a robust search strategy.
