Video one of a ten-video series all about nursing resources and how to be an efficient researcher.

Go here for a super quick library tour of generally where to find what on the library’s website

ArticlesPlus and Full-Text - ArticlesPlus is the first green tab and default search on the library’s homepage. This video will show you some features as well as show you how to get full-text to online content.

If you are looking for books or journals, then ALICE is the best place to search. This video will show you how.

This video highlights some of my favorite resources that are specific to nursing. It will also highlight some features of each of the resources and general tips.

You have an assignment that says, “Pick a topic that relates to nursing and is current.” And you’re thinking, “I have no idea where to start.” This video tells you where to start when it comes to brainstorming and getting your topic off the ground.

This video focuses on taking your topic and how to search for it in databases. It’s not the same as searching Google, so this video walks you through that transition.

CINAHL and PubMed are two of the places you will be searching in most, so this video highlights these two resources in more detail.

Zotero will save and cite all of your resources for you!
