Finding Biomedical Information. A Learning Module for Medical Technology Students on the Basics of the Use of Medical Literature in the Shiffman Medical Library, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan.
Bryant, Barton B.; Rizzo, Joseph F.
This self-instructional library workbook was used in a series of workshops--sponsored by the Medical Technology Department in Wayne State University's College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions--in order to reduce attrition by increasing the probability of success for academically high-risk students in the professional medical technology curriculum. Designed to be used in conjunction with lectures and supervised exercises in the library, the workbook covers: (1) the physical arrangement of Wayne State University's Shiffman Medical Library; (2) the process of locating materials in the library; (3) use of the card catalog; (4) the organization of Medical Subject Headings (MeSH); (5) problem-solving with monographs and jounals; (6) use of the Union List of Selected Serials of Michigan (ULOSSOM); and (7) use of Index Medicus. Also provided are a pretest, a posttest, and answers to quick quizzes on each section. (Author/ESR)
