Medical literature searching - What it is and what it is NOT

Medical literature searching is NOT about locating full text articles to "plug in" a list of references at the end of anything that you wrote. It is the task of locating whatever has been published on a topic you seek information about or related to any writing or documenting you are doing. Once you get references and/or abstracts, locating full text articles is a logistical activity and NOT a search activity.
