Help with structured searches

The library can be of assistance with larger and more structured searches, for example before an application.

An example of how the collaboration could work

  1. First meeting: Bring your framing of a question and one or more articles that are relevant. Together we discuss search terms, search strategies and look at relevant databases. We perform a first test search together.
  2. After the meeting, you review the search results and estimate the relevance.
  3. Second meeting: We optimize the search strategy until we are satisfied with the result.
  4. When we have developed a good search strategy, the librarian, or you, performs searches in other relevant databases. The searches are documented.
  5. The end result may be added to a reference management program.
