Go into www.library.nhs.uk and click on Login nowwww.library.nhs.uk
To reduce this further you can use limits but always use them one at a time. Put the number of the search that you wish to limit [in this case 3] into the search box, set the date limits from 2005 to 2010 to get the most recent articles and then click on SEARCH
You can if you wish limit this further by type of article [e.g. review]. To do this put the number of the search [in this case 4] in the search box, scroll down to Article Journal and Publication type, click on the double arrows on the right, scroll down to review in Publication Type, click on Review and then click on SEARCH.
If you want to look at the list of articles you have selected then click on the number of hits in the search history screen on the right. A list of articles will appear.
Click on the title line of those you are interested in. Fuller details will appear including abstracts and links to full text articles if they exist. The full text article should appear in a separate window.
Tick on the boxes by the article you are interested in. The number of results should appear in the Results Selected box if you scroll down to the bottom of the page. You can then export the results to your PC, a memory stick etc. To do this click on Export Results
Or you can email them to yourself or a colleague. To do this click on Email Results.
You can also run the same search on another database such as Medline. Click on Search using different databases.
Click on the database you want, in this example Medline. Select the new database you want and click on the box next to it. Click on NEXT.
Click on RE-EXECUTE SEARCH HISTORY Adjust the search with relevant thesaurus terms from Medline if necessary
As well as searching by keywords we can also search by journal and author. Use quotation marks for journals e.g. “new england journal of medicine”. Choose the journal name field.
For authors use the format “surname initial” e.g. “clarke t” or if you don’t know the initial just the surname followed by a * [wildcard] e.g. “clarke*”
You can then combine journal and authors to produce a short list of articles to look at.
