Urban and Public Affairs Librarian Emily Ford is offering two free, online workshops for graduate students and faculty interested in learning more about Ovid MEDLINE and data. 

Power Searching in Ovid MEDLINE

Wednesday, February 19, 12-1pm

Advance registration required!

Learn to use Ovid MEDLINE like the pros! Creating power searches in Ovid MEDLINE will save you time, energy, and frustration as you complete that research project, literature review, or other school work. This session will cover the ins and outs of finding appropriate subjects to search, constructing searches using the "explode" and "focus" features, and general tips. All graduate students are welcome to attend, but it will be especially useful for students working toward MPH degrees, Gerontology Certificates, MA/MS in Health Studies, or an MPA in Health Administration.

Friday, February 21, 12-1pm

Advance registration required!

You've read the theories and articles, and you know it must be true, but sometimes finding concrete data to back it up can be difficult. This hour-long workshop will cover where and how to find data sets for social sciences research.
