  • Demonstrate library resources for use in the review.
  • How to replicate searches on other databases and resources.
  • Help in the design of search strategies.
  • Use of reference management software, namely Endnote.
  • Saving and managing your references.
  • Create citation and search result alerts.
  • Help to locate difficult to find material, using the inter-library loan service, for example.
