My first question would be: "What do you want to know about carbohydrates?"  Are you interested in diet, chemistry, metabolism, etc.?

I can suggest some databases:

  • ScienceDirect
  • CINAHL
  • ProQuest Nursing
  • PubMed

Some Tips:

  1. Write down some key words that interest you about carbs (e.g. diet, nutrition, chemistry, hypoglycemia) and incorparte them in your search
  2. Check out the "Thesaurus" or "Subjects" for a database.  For CINAHL you see "CINAHL Headings" at the top of the screen.   Look here for some keywords and subject ideas.
  3. Have a topic question about Carbohydrates (i.e. what do you want to know about them?)
