Welcome to the Library of the Health Sciences. 
This guide provides links to resources that we hope will help you with your education at UND.

Saving Your Reseach

It is always a good idea to try to save your search strategy, as well as articles you find from that particular search. It will easier as you work to finish your projects to not replicate searches over and over and think to yourself, "Did I already see this article?" In addition, the theory of evidence-based practice includes the ability of someone else to replicate your search.

There are two ways you can do this.

In our Ebscohost vendor (the one with the blue ball/green print) - Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, CINAHL, Health Source - Consumer Edition and Nursing/Academic Edition, PsycINFO, to name a few - you can create a folder. Here are the directions for doing that: Saving to Folders in CINHAL

In PubMed and other products produced by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), you can use the My NCBI account. Here are the directions for doing that: My NCBI
