Conducting a Library Search


Paper details:

The choice of Boolean terminology can markedly affect your search returns. Select a topic related to your area of practice, and select two scholarly databases to find information on the topic. Describe the search. What key words did you use? How many articles did your initial search yield? How did you narrow or expand the search? How many articles did you find once you narrowed or expanded the search? Summarize the results from the search. (I really don’t care what the topic is about as long it pertains to nursing…although the topic is not really what the teacher is looking to learn about, the instructor wants to know about the search.) Utilize Cinahl and Medline databases.
