Welcome to my search tips blog!

I'm hoping that I can help you keep your information seeking skills up to date by posting searching tips and techniques.

Since I'm a medical librarian, I'll be focusing mostly on databases such as MEDLINE (via Ovid or PubMed), PsycINFO, Web of Science, and other health and biomedical resources. But whatever comes to my attention that's interesting or cool, I'll bring to your attention.

Hi Jan,
Thank you sooo much for your tips on how to search Medline, Pubmed, and/or others databases. I am working on a meta-synthesis research project [psychosocial impact of childhood cancer on mothers]. I am having hard time to find qualitative research articles. Do you know how to retrieve qualitative research articles from ovid and pubmed? Any magic words??? Thanks, Beyhan

The blog is an excellent idea. You might consider a different comment tracking application like, Haloscan (it's free), and to track blog statistics, something like Statcounter (also free)

Jan, nice idea for a blog. Can you set up your RSS feed in Blogger? I'd like to add your site to my Bloglines account. Carol

PS to do this login to Blogger. Click on your blog. Click the settings tab. Click site feed. Set "Publish Site feed" to Yes. Set Descriptions to Full or short (full-text or first paragraph of your post). Hit "Save Settings". Copy your feed URL and add it to a link on your template "RSS feed".

Dear Jan,
I have little to do with medicine, but your blog is very helpful. Thank you.
