Now that we are using Desk Tracker to record literature searches, there is no longer a prompt to record “purpose of search.” This information should be entered in the notes field at the bottom of the form, however it is important to use standard language in order to facilitate data-mining for subsequent reports.
Please record purpose of search using standard language, as found on the print and online search request forms:
Clinical Decision Making
Management Decision Making
Research or Teaching
Paper or Presentation
