REPUBLICAN SCIENTIFIC MEDICAL LIBRARY

Search Services

The patrons of the library can either search medical information on needed topics by themselves, or they can address them to the Information and Access Services Department. The librarian performs biomedical information searches and provides the patron with the list of references to journal articles on needed topics.

The following filters are used while realizing information searches:
. Specific terms
. Aspect of care (e.g. diagnosis, treatment)
. Include/Exclude (e.g. conditions, drugs, techniques)
. Purpose (e.g. clinical, research, other)
. Specific age group

Information searches are usually completed within 3 days, not including the weekends. Search results can be emailed to the requester or picked up at the library.
Information searches performed by the librarian will save the patron time and effort.
