SHS Staff Requests

Medical literature subject searches: Library staff can provide you with lists of abstracts of articles from which you could choose the articles that interest you or we can simply provide you straight off with articles that seem appropriate to your needs—your choice. Please specify the search parameters in terms of how far back in time you’d like us to look; the date you must have the info (ASAP?); the age range of the patient population involved (All adults? The elderly? Infants?) and other details you consider pertinent (e.g. inpatient only). Please indicate whether you need consumer, physician or nurse level info.

Articles: If you already know the title of the articles you need please provide the author, the place of publication, year and, if possible, page numbers and, if you found the article in PubMed, the PMID number:
