What is a literature search?
When you are looking for information on a specific topic, a reference librarian can search subscription databases, catalogues, and the Internet for resources that meet your needs. Librarians can search for journal articles, books, audiovisual materials, reports, clinical trials, practice guidelines, and dissertations.
Usually the search is completed within a week or two of the request, but clinical and urgent questions will be prioritized. The results of the search are sent to you by e-mail, mail, or fax. You then select the items you want to consult and we'll have them sent directly to you by mail, e-mail, or fax.
Contact us immediately either by e-mail (email@example.com) or telephone (1-877-789-3804). We will issue a new card at no charge.
