Welcome to the Prescribing Subject Guide!
Here you will find information to help you successfully complete your academic assignments.
Click on the Subject Resources tab to see the large number of databases we have, many of which you will need use in order to find journal literature on a topic. The most important databases for prescribing include Medline, Cochrane Library and Cinahl, but you will also need to look at others depending on the nature of your topic.
For more information about journals click on the Journals tab.
For some tips on how to search such databases effectively, please click on the Basic Literature Searching tab. Here you will also find a couple of printable guides on literature searching.
The final tab provides information on our Document Supply Service. This allows you to request items that the Lanchester Library does not have in stock.
These are some of the most important databases for finding journal literature.
Come along to a Library event or workshop to help you improve your academic and study skills. Check the calendar to see what’s on and book your place.
