CINAHL Plus is a database containing literature focused on nursing and allied health, but it does more than just basic article searching. A new set of video tutorials designed by UCLA librarians will introduce you to CINAHL tips and tricks that will make your searches more powerful and allow you to share articles and searches with colleagues.
Each brief tutorial covers how to use a particular CINAHL feature, including setting limits, refining results, saving and sharing searches, using the search history, and exporting citations to EndNote. Rather than read through long instructions, follow along as the tutorials take you step by step with video that shows you exactly where to click on the screen and how to find the information you need.
To access the set of eight tutorials, visit the Nursing Subject Guide. In the Article Databases tab, scroll down to box labeled “Database Tutorials.” The videos require Flash software, which can be downloaded for free from Adobe’s web site.
