Your tricky literature searching questions answered!

The International Clinical Librarian Conference, the Pharmacy and Drug Information Section and the Institutional Animal Care and Use SIG of the MLA are having an invited panel session at One Health on the practicalities of  literature searching. One Health is a federated international meeting incorporating the 2013 Annual Meeting and Exhibition of the Medical Library Association (MLA ’13), the 11th International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML), the 7th International Conference of Animal Health Information Specialists (ICAHIS), and the 6th International Clinical Librarian Conference (ICLC).

The panel of invited speakers will be discussing methods of constructing search strategies, filters or hedges and will discuss the tricks of the trade from their experience as expert searchers. We would like to invite you and your colleagues to send in your questions for the panel to address. If you are attending One Health you are welcome to come and hear the questions selected by the panel, answered live.  Those submitting a question, that is chosen to be answered by the panel, will also receive a written answer to their question, via email.

You don’t have to be a MLA member, clinical librarian, informationist or an embedded librarian to submit a question to the panel, just someone who searches health databases and would like some advice from your colleagues.

Questions to be emailed to Sarah.Sutton@uhl-tr.nhs.uk by 29th of March 2013.
