PBL Research Guide


This research guide was created for PBL students to help find information using resources from the library. In this guide, the search process is outlined and resources are grouped by the type of question being asked.

Typically, background questions are addressed during the first semester of PBL, and foreground questions are introduced in the second semester.

The Search Process

Background questions are answered with textbooks, guidelines, POC tools; foreground questions are answered with articles (PubMed)
