Visual Search in DOSS
Click on the link to Visual Search link below the search box.
Visual Search is a category style search for finding some citations without thinking too hard about how to search.
Type in a broad term.
Click on the search button.
DOSS will find up to 250 citations that are on the topic, but perhaps not the same 250 each time you use the same search term.
Now you can click on one of the more specific categories to reduce the number of citations and make your search more focused.
You can scroll down the list of citations by pointing your cursor at the bottom of the list of citations.
You can click on any citation to find more information about it.
This is probably not the most academic approach to finding information using this database, but it might be fun to experiment a bit with it.
You have now completed the Library PubMed and DOSS tutorial.
Make sure you have successfully answered all the questions.
You should now be able to make good use of the Library and its resources to find most of the information you need this year.
Remember that if you are having any problems finding information you can always ask me for help.
