Where to Begin

Databases vary in subject specialty. Review descriptions to find the best fit for your topic before starting your search. Generally in nursing, PubMed or CINAHL are great starting places. 


  • Always search more than one database.

  • Always use key words.

    • Typing a sentence or research question into a database search box will yield an overwhelming amount of irrelevant results. 

  • Create database accounts whenever possible. 

    • This provides " "insurance" if your search session times out and allows you to save searches.
