Literature Searching

Literature searching is a core skill for effective systematic reviews. UNCOVER volunteers based at the University of Edinburgh can access online training resources here.

For all UNCOVER volunteers based at the University of Edinburgh, we recommend an excellent online self-study resource on Literature Searching, created by UNCOVER's own Marshall Dozier. To access it:

  • Either click on Self-enrol IS skills courses under the Course catalogue (self-enrol courses) section; OR, in the Search Catalogue search box, type "libsmart” and click Go.
  • To enrol, click on the down-pointing arrow next to the course title “zp_libsmart_2”   and choose Enrol.
  • Click Submit followed by OK. You should now be able to view the course.
