A series of video tutorials by the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library at Yale University, on how to systematically search the health sciences literature. The videos will mainly focus on systematic searches required by a "systematic review". The goal of these tutorials is to ensure that your search is comprehensive, methodical, transparent and reproducible, so that your conclusions are as unbiased and closer to the the truth as possible.
