Literature Reviews for Engineering, Forestry, Health Science, Land & Food Systems, and Science

Workshop Description

This workshop is appropriate for students conducting literature reviews in Engineering, Forestry, Health Science, Land & Food Systems, and Science.

Topics include:

  • What is a literature review?
  • Select the right databases
  • Search strategies for databases
  • Find scholarly articles, theses and dissertations, books, and more
  • Resources to help you keep track of your research

There will be three breakout rooms for hands-on time for searching, and assistance from the presenting librarians:

  • Health Science
  • Forestry & Land and Food Systems
  • Engineering & Sciences

Can't make it to this workshop? Check for additional dates or contact the subject librarian for your research area.

Please note that literature reviews are different from systematic and scoping reviews (see how). Check for systematic and scoping review workshops.
