Mobile short-cut

New to the library research process?

       Using the University Libraries' resources can be challenging to students.  My colleagues prepared an excellent research guide to help you master the basics of library research.  The guide is available at  You can use the tabs to go to the section you want. The topics are covered in depth and include active links, videos, handouts to print for yourself, and some activities to test your knowledge.  The content is general in nature while this guide is focused on library research for nursing.

About this guide

       This guide has been organized to help you find both general information about the nursing profession and specific information to lead you through the library research process.  There is also information you might find useful in planning care for your patients, ie., the Online Reference Shelf. 

        When a discussion with a friendly and knowledgeable librarian would help you get started or move beyond a "challenge" in your research,  please reach out to one of the nursing librarians:
