Please register for this online workshop.
CINAHL: Beyond the Search Box
Have you put a search term in CINAHL and the results were not what you were expecting? We’ll explain how to formulate a search, structure search terms, and use subject headings and limiters to get the results you need.
How to Choose What Database to Use
The library provides so many databases and resources, how do you know which one best suits your needs? Let’s explore different types of resources and when to use what.
Special Collection – Nursing
Librarians from the Library's Special Collections department provide an overview of nursing content that can be viewed online or in person.
Keynote: Do They Know my Name (and Work)? Navigating Your Online Scholarly Identity
Social media and research-project websites can be a great way to have professional presence and meet peers, but navigating which site to use can be confusing and time consuming. Professor Abigail Goben will present options and strategies to manage your online scholarly identity and avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Finding Validated Instruments
Looking for validated research questionnaires and surveys can be tricky and difficult. We’ll show you strategies to find these research instruments by using databases such as CINAHL and PsycINFO.
RefWorks vs EndNote for Managing Citations
Are you trying to decide which citation manager to use? Let’s look at the features of the of these two popular citation management tools used by UIC nursing faculty and students for creating and managing bibliographies.
Are you looking for an easy way to read e-journals? We’ll demonstrate how to BrowZe the library’s e-journals in a normalized setting and build your own reading room of journals to follow.
Copyright and Fair Use
Copyright and Fair Use can be confusing. We’ll provide an overview of Copyright policy and Fair Use tools to keep you compliant with the law.
Point-of-Care tools provide information that can immediately be used within a patient care setting, but the features and evidence-based information for nurses among them can vary. We’ll present an overview of UpToDate, DynaMed, and Nursing Reference Center.
