How to do a literature search
Forming a research question
Searching for journal articles in databases (e.g., CINAHL, Medline, Pubmed)
Searching for grey literature

These sessions can assist students by:
Helping them develop well-thought out research questions
Ensuring that high-quality sources are being used for research papers and presentations
Making sure that they are properly citing the material they use
Demonstrating that there is someone to go to for questions
