Session presented 17 March, 2017: Creating healthy work environments takes effort. That effort benefits from existing guidance. Existing guidance may be found in scholarly repositories and subscription-based databases. Locating and retrieving relevant items within a repository or database can be challenging if you don't have the correct search strategy, your plan is not complete, or you are lacking the necessary tools in your information literacy tool belt. This session will give you the basic tools and tips to craft a search strategy and successfully search STTI's Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository (the "Henderson Repository") for on-target items. These basic search techniques may be utilized in other databases to retrieve relevant results. This session will answer the following questions. What databases should I use? Should I use a basic or advanced search? What are search limiters or filters and how (or why) should I use them? What is the difference between keywords and subject headings? How will subject headings help my search? What is full-text searching? Is it ever appropriate to use Google? Once you have created your own plans and policies for a healthy work environment within your organization, you will want to share that information with others while taking credit for your work and retaining copyright. Don't lose control over your own work. You will also learn the benefits of open-access dissemination through the Henderson Repository. What are you waiting for? Experience dynamic dissemination with the Henderson Repository through its built-in global usage statistics and ability to track and collate online conversations and activity surrounding your work. Altmetric allows authors to engage in online discussions surrounding their work. This session assumes that you already have your topic and question (e.g., What have other hospitals, universities, organizations, and/or nurses done to create healthy work environments?) and are ready to begin searching resources for target materials.
