These videos are stored on UBC’s OneDrive. To access them, you will need to activate your student UBC email address. Follow the instructions here under ‘Getting Started’. You should then be able to access the files with your CWL credentials.

The following set of videos walks students through parsing a research question highlighted in the media using PIO to identify the research population, intervention, and outcome. This PIO is then used to create a search strategy. Once the search strategy is complete, this strategy is implemented in Medline (Web of Science) and Web of Science Core Collection.

Instructors may wish to encourage students to first install and set up Zotero for managing their references. They may also encourage students to review UBC Library’s APA Citation Style Guide.
