What Are You Looking For?
It does not provide an exhaustive literature search.
Search PubMed and over 200 other bioresearch information sources: citation databases, clinical trial databases, electronic journal publishers, experimental protocols, funding sources and patent databases.
Search inside a number of clinical textbooks arranged by specialty.
Do your search and when a hit number is seen beside a textbook link, click on it to see the results.
Search PubMed, UpToDate, Cochrane, DARE, BMJ and more for clinical evidence.
EBP experts use PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) to develop answerable patient-centered questions.
Most people search by using very simple queries. By importing terms from your PICO question to your literature search, you can more effectively hone in on clinical research pertinent to your patient's problem.
Search Bassett collection of anatomical images of the human body.
The database is named after Dr. David Bassett, a professor of anatomy at Stanford Medical School, pioneered many innovations in dissection. Beginning in 1948, working in collaboration with an early 3-D photographer, they compiled a 24-volume Stereoscopic Atlas of Human Anatomy.
In 2008, Lane library catalogued the 1,547 three-dimensional photographic images of human anatomy and in early 2009 introduced two dimensional versions of all those images.
Search Lane Catalog, Lane historical collections and Stanford Archives.
We use a uniform set of tags to categorize the items in the collections (e.g., articles, Books, Chapters, Events, Finding Aids, Images, Journals, Moving Images, Objects, Organizations, People, Theses, Wilson SoM History by Dr. Wilson).
Search Lane Catalog..... NEED more explanation, maybe?
MeSH terms are assigned by indexers to each citation within PubMed or MEDLINE. The rigor and hierarchical structure of this vocabulary is very helpful in carrying out comprehensive literature searches.
