TIPS: When searching the Databases, Catalog or the Internet
Articles from the library's online databases provide you with the most recent, scholarly, peer-reviewed and researched information from journals, magazines and reports in health science including Nursing. See the page titled Find Articles for detailed information and links to the article databases.
Books / eBooks
Use books to get the detailed and historical data and background information on your topic.
Use reference books like dictionaries and encyclopedias to get the basic ideas and the exact definition on a topic. We have online databases like STAT!Ref for medical specific reference books.
The web can be a great source of digital information hub if you select the right sources. Try using government and educational sites for scholarly resources. Also try genuine primary information provided by professional organizations. Check out the sites we have added on the page titled Web Sites of this guide.
