Browse these online web resources for a potential research topic.
Library databases have many filters that can be used to narrow or broaden a search. In particular, they use 'controlled vocabulary' which means that they consistently assign tags or descriptors to documents such as articles or books. For example in the database PubMed/Medline, all articles about heart attacks with the subject 'Myocardial Infarction.'
In addition, PubMed/Medline as well as CINAHL and other databases provide filters that allow you to limit your search results. For example, you can apply filters that limit results to: nursing-related research, English-language, last five years, and adult population.
You can access some of these databases on the library's main website, on the Finding Articles tab for this guide, or by the links below.
