How to search and read the literature
Here are some articles that provide helpful direction for both conducting your literature reviews and for deciphering the components and content of the clinical literature:
Your Regional Medical Library
The MSU Library will always be available to you for research assistance once you're no longer connected to MSU ( visit our ASK a Librarian Link!); additionally, you'll also always have access to research assistance from your Regional Medical Library, part of the National Library of Medicine's National Network of Libraries of Medicine. Follow this link for access to your RML: http://nnlm.gov/
OR feel free to contact me directly! I'm happy to field research questions from you long after you've left MSU!

Resources for conducting a literature review/finding articles, etc.
Where to start? You might start with Web of Knowledge, below, since it's a very large, interdisciplinary database that includes the MEDLINE database (i.e, much of the PubMed content). However, you may need to search your topic across several databases depending on the interdisciplinary nature of your topic. Or try CINAHL as it indexes many of the key nutrition and dietetics journals. OR start with PubMed and if you're not linked right to full text of an article, search the library's Journals By Title database to see if we subscribe to a particular journal from which you need an article.
