Literature search tips: saving those search blocks

This week's literature search tip comes from our Clinical Librarian Service Manager, Pip Divall:

If you run literature searches that include a regular topic or block of terms, for example, all terms relating to paediatrics, save those terms or block of the search to use next time. Also, don't forget to share those search strategies with colleagues too!

There's a great article on saving search  here: http://eahil.eu/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/11-14-de-Jonge.pdf

We hope you like today's tip! Stay tuned for more and please do share your thoughts in the comments field below or on our Twitter page and catch up on our previous literature search tips here.
