PsycINFO, SocAbstracts)
  • Min-Lin Fang, MLIS

Agenda
  • Database Selection

4
Developing Search Strategies
  • Formulate a question.
  • Break your question into multiple concepts.
  • Locate the appropriate MeSH (indexed term) for
    each concept.
  • Run the search using AND, OR, NOT
  • Apply limit options (date, language, age,
    publication type, gender), major headings and
    subheadings
  • Modify your search strategies and rerun your
    search.

5
Why Indexed Term?
  • MeSH terms (indexed terms) are an efficient way
    to find articles on concepts where authors may
    use different words to discuss the same ideas.
  • Using Indexed Terms (Thesaurus) improves
    precision and accuracy of subject searching.
  • Keyword search (title, MeSH, abstract) may not
    retrieve relevant articles.
  • Example physical therapy
  • Storytelling as therapy implications for
    medicine.
  • Abstract Storytelling is an art developed
    during the beginning of human history, probably
    to teach the wisdom of generations past,
    including basic mental and physical health
    principles
