Library Session

The Faculty of Dentistry librarians will instruct a hands-on session on Evidence Based Dentistry (EBD) research to help you identify your clinical questions and what the best resources are to answers those questions. The scope of this session is to provide you with an introduction to (or review of) searching for dental literature. Searching for literature can be a complex process. Generally, there are many ways of simplifying the process in several steps for easier organization and management of the tasks. 

Here are five steps that are commonly used in EBD research:

  1. Identify the main concepts for your clinical questions
  2. Select the most relevant types of resources
  3. Plan your searches 
  4. Document the search
  5. Evaluate what you find (which will be covered by your instructor)

To learn more about these steps please click on the appropriate tab at the top of this guide.
