There are many ways to discover data in the Canary Database. The search interface maps subject and species synonyms automatically, and supports simple, advanced, and do-it-yourself search syntax with an array of fields you may specify. All search result screens, as well as the browsing screens at left, support a set of quick visual tools which summarize the records you see and help you to quickly refine views.

sample search results

Visual indicators of study distribution by year and the number of studies that describe data about specific linkages between human and animal health are always available. Both give a quick indication of what the studies you see are about, and when they were published. And you can click on them to refine your view!

Find similar links show the most frequent exposures, outcomes, species, and author names for any search result or browsing view of Canary Database records. Use these to quickly refine your search strategy without using any complex search syntax.

Or, if you really like complex search syntax, we do that too! We support BRS/Ovid, Pubmed, and Lucene style fielded searching with a wide range of fields to choose from. Read all about it on our How to Search page.
