Getting the Most from the O.N.E. Network Search
Issue Index | Related Articles
Searching for information on the O.N.E. Network is easy and can be tailored to your needs. To help you navigate this incredibly rich Web site, we will highlight several ways to search for information.
In the upper right-hand corner of the Web page, there is a search box to type in the key words of your choice. Given the wealth of information and resources provided on the O.N.E. Network, busy practitioners will want to take advantage of this search function to save time and gather the most relevant material. The search bar functions much the same as popular Web-based search engines like Google or Yahoo!
The more specific your search terms, the more relevant the results. Alternatively, search terms that are too specific may yield few or no results. Returned search results can then be separated by clinical context (e.g., disease, risk factors, surgery, complications) or by source (journals, guidelines, etc.).
Under the "Search Results" banner, you also have the ability to further narrow results by factors such as date and language by using the "Advanced Search" function. Additionally, under the "My AAO" heading, you can save up to four searches for access at a later time. Although the O.N.E. Network synthesizes search results from multiple sources, you may wish to broaden your search by using the "Search This In" Google or PubMed function.
All of these features add up to a powerful, comprehensive tool for ophthalmologists at any stage in their career.
On any Web page, type in your word(s) of choice in the “Search” box at the top right corner of every page. To narrow down your search, you can choose from the following options:
- Advanced Search
- Save Search
- Search this in Google
- Search this in PubMed
(When you really need to find the needle in the hay stack.) By selecting "Advanced Search," you can choose one or more search options. For example, you have the option of selecting "with all of the words" or "with at least one of the words or phrases" or "without the words."
You can also focus your search by choosing a specific language. File format can also be selected (e.g., PDF, PPT, etc.). Additionally, you can select based on the date or occurrences (e.g., anywhere on the page, in the title of the page, and in the URL of the page). Finally, you can sort the material by relevance and date.
You can save any of your searches by clicking "Search Saved." This will be displayed on the right side of the page under Searches, and can be retrieved at a later date.
Search this in Google/Search this in PubMed
Search for anything without leaving the O.N.E. Network Web pages by clicking "Search this in Google" or "Search this in PubMed." The search terms used in the O.N.E. Network are automatically transferred to the external site’s search box when the Google or PubMed page is opened.
We hope you find this brief overview helpful. We have no doubt that the O.N.E. Network will ultimately be the place for individuals to identify products, news and educational materials to help all ophthalmologists provide better care to our patients.
