Getting Started with Information Resarch

This guide will introduce you to PCOM Library resources and services for your assignments and research projects in Forensic Medicine. These are just a sample of the resources currently available online.

OneSearch+ simultaneously searches multiple databases and the PCOM catalog. Use it to find a variety of literature from a wide array of  new sources from databases you do not routinely search.  A mobile interface provides the growing number of smart phone users with easy access.

 Journal Locator+ links to over 10,000 licensed electronic journals. You can search by keyword, title, subject, publisher, or collection.

LinkSource links from a reference in a database to the full text article in any licensed collection. Look for the database specific link to full text, for example:   in EBSCO and OVID MEDLINE or   in PubMed.

Users may also find useful information in the following Library Subject Guides:

Many students routinely rely on Wikipedia and other unvetted (unexamined, unevaluated) web sites for information. Research expertise requires an understanding of:
  • the different types of information available to you: what are primary, secondary, and tertiary literature
  • appropriate selection of information resources
  • database search skills
  • critical review skills
  • research management skills  

This guide was developed at faculty request because, "Wikipedia doesn't cut it anymore."
