Tips for Searching

  • Are there multiple ways to spell the term you are looking for? (e.g. anesthesia vs. anaesthesia) You may have to try variations on the term to get the definition.

  • Are you looking for the definition of a term as it is used in a specialty health care field rather than a general definition? You may have to try a subject-specific medical dictionary to get information relevant to your field of research.
