Learn how to search efficiently in the Ovid version of the three core agricultural databases: CAB Abstracts, Agricola, and Food Sciences and Technology Abstracts. Researchers in the farm animal (including veterinary), entomological (pest), fruit and vegetable crop, farming systems, food sciences and technology, viticulture and enology, and human nutrition areas will find these databases to be the most pertinent to their research needs. Database searching strategies covered include: keyword, author and title; using the wildcard and common limits; and using the thesaurus, indexes and search history features. Current awareness (update/alert) services, how to use UCD-eLink, and how to cross-search databases simultaneously will also be discussed. Learn about Journal Citation Reports, which indicates the top journals in each discipline. A brief overview of data management tools from the UC Curation Center will be provided.
