Our information specialists offer personal assistance to members of the University of Basel and of the University Hospital Basel who have specific questions about literature searching in medical bibliographic databases.
- Peer Review / formulation of search strategies
- Support for translation of search queries from one database to another (PubMed/Medline, Cinahl, Embase, Cochrane Library, PsycInfo, etc.)
- Procedure and documentation of comprehensive searches for systematic reviews and other review types
- Management of reference data with EndNote or other citation management software
A one-hour mentoring session including preparation and follow-up by the library staff is provided free of charge for members of the University and of the University Hospital Basel. For external enquiries a quote will be provided.
One hour of mentoring entitles medical students to receive a CP within the framework of WIKO-Flex (overview WIKO-Flex-Angebote/Anrechnung).
On request we create and carry out systematic searches.
