Consider also that discipline-specific medical and/or nursing societies and professional organizations will sometimes issue guidelines around a particular subject area.  Consider looking at an organization's website, if that organization is relevant to your clinical question.


We have many databases available in a variety of disciplines.  Please see the Databases box (click here), (or scroll down the page) for a list of our most popular research databases that you could consider using, depending on the focus of your clinical question.  If you need to know about additional databases to which the Library has access, contact the library for assistance.
