NUR 455 Course Guide: Saving Searches/Citations

Personal Database Accounts

You or your group may want to create personal accounts in the datbases you search. These personal accounts allow you to save entire search strategies or create folders to save just citations that you're interested in. If you create a  personal account for your entire group to use, choose a generic username and password - one that your entire group can share (do NOT use your MSU NetID/password).

The PDF handout below explains, step by step, how to set up personal accounts in CINAHL and PubMed - the two most heavily used databases for the SSPs.
