Evidence Based Practice
Our trained information professionals provide expert searching to help you locate evidence
based medicine (EBM) materials.
Assistance with information searching
We offer large-group, small-group, and individual instructional sessions on how to perform EBM searches across a wide variety of resources to help you locate
relevant information from scholarly journals, databases, e-books, conference materials, statistics,
grey literature, and other data and electronic resources.
Our librarians help you identify different types of journals (subscription-based or open access) for article submission. We also provide advice on copyright and plagiarism issues.
Seeking and Managing Grants
OUWB medical librarians assist
researchers in finding federal and private funding opportunities, and consult about tools used to create and update
an NIH Biosketch and professional profile tools that organize and manage faculty research efforts/output (e.g. ORCID, SciENcv).
OUWB medical librarians provide consultation and assistance through all steps of conducting a systematic
review, including an initial consultation, developing and conducting comprehensive literature searches,
writing up methods for systematic reviews or participating
as a review team member on systematic review projects. Contact us at the beginning phase of
your project to ensure sufficient time to review and refine your review question,
determine the review type, and perform the
literature searches and other tasks.
We also provide access to Covidence to assist with article screening and data extraction. Please contact Dr. Misa Mi for questions or assistance with the use of Covidence.
To use Covidence through our library subscription, please
create an account with Covidence using your OU email address.
Please review Getting Started with Covidence if you wish to view the videos on using
Covidience for conducting a systematic review and our Covidence Guide to get you started.
