Evidence-Based Veterinary Medicine is contingent on one important idea, that you have access to the evidence to evaluate it. The following presentation is about how to utilize freely available resources for the limited resources of a private practitioner. Review the utilization of robust databases that are freely available: PubMed and Google Scholar. Additionally, the oft overlooked resource in your neighborhood often has many veterinary resources, your local library. This presentation or tutorial is about how to utilize these databases and public libraries to access the resources you want without leaving the comfort of your clinic.
