Want to optimize your searches?

Next in our infographic series is a topic I was asked to address at a recent instruction session. It’s great to know how to use MeSH terms and retrieve article PDFs, but what about constructing the search in the first place? What’s the best way to translate a research question into terms the database will understand? This infographic is designed to answer those questions. If you have others, please feel free to contact me through the comment section or at radlibATuw[dot edu].
