Connie Schardt pointed out that it could be useful for finding handouts, tutorials and other teaching materials. Here are some ideas on how this might be done.
- Say you’re looking for PowerPoint presentations about Evidence based medicine. You’d want to seach for “Evidence Based” or “EBM” or “EBP” where the file type is .ppt or .pps, right? To perform this search in the Medical Library search engine, just enter:
(“evidence based”|EBM|EBP) (filetype:ppt OR filetype:pps)
- If you’re looking for handouts about PubMed:
handout pubmed (filetype:doc OR filetype:pdf)
Your turn: What other searches would be useful?
