Get to know these two veterinary databases for this first case plus how to search the Web for goat information, suggestions in box below.
|Database/resource||What to know about it|
|Consultant from Cornell||Freely available, 5300 diseases of 8 species, including caprine, updated daily by Dr. Pete White|
Subscription, the international research database for agriculture and veterinary medicine. If you are a PubMed searcher, keep searching PubMed, but depending on information need and species, add a search of CAB because it indexes all veterinary journals plus theses, dissertations, books, and more. PubMed indexes a subset of vet journals, about 90 out of 4,000 total indexed.
Searching tip: One major difference between searching CAB ABSTRACTS and PubMed:
goat* OR caprine retrieves more than just goat* and is an optimized search for this species
|Goat information on the Web||
University Extension programs have lots of quality information on goats for vets and goat owners
See boxes below for search tips and examples please.
For more information, ask Ann Viera, Veterinary Librarian, and/or see the evidence-based veterinary medicine guide.
Search Tip: Use Advanced search in Google and limit to .edu domains when searching the Web for this case. This will quickly get you to quality sites from Extension and other government or organization web pages. Limited to .gov or .org might also be useful.
Always evaluate information from the Web, scientific journals, or elsewhere!
