Q. Where can I find helpful information about plastic surgery?


To find information about plastic surgery, some suggested resources are:

Some tips to remember:

  • When searching, put "plastic surgery" in quotation marks to tell the computer that you want to find these words as a phrase and not as separate words.
  • In the databases, make sure you are searching for full text articles. Most of the databases have a box that you can check to limit your results to full text articles. (If the database is all full text, then it will not have the option and you will not have to worry about it.)
  • When searching the databases, pay attention to what types of articles you are finding. There is a big difference between a newspaper article and an article from an academic journal.
  • You may need to narrow down your search to a specific aspect in plastic surgery. You will get better results if you decide to look for a slightly narrower topic. Some examples would be, "plastic surgery and teenagers", "plastic surgery and burn victims", or "plastic surgery and vanity". You would add the additional topic word to your search using the word "and".

If you need additional assistance, you can always contact your campus librarian and they can help you with your research.
