Storing search engines, databases and references: Personal Library!

If your head is swimming with all those different search engines and databases we advise you to bookmark them. Personal Library is the best place to do so.

After having logged in with your Solis ID you select your discipline with a selection of relevant databases and journals.
You can fill this personal library with other sources, books, articles, alerts from your own sources and search results under the References tab. You can enhance these references with summaries and metadata, and share them if you are working on a group assignment.

In this training, you will learn skills that will help you search PubMed efficiently. This training is primarily used in courses at the Faculty of Medicine.
