Welcome to your library research guide for RN to BSN students! This guide will help to introduce you to library resources you will need to successfully complete your program. The guide contains information about how to find professional nursing journals, how to access and search the library's subscription databases, important links, and lists of information you will need.
Use the tabs along the top of the guide to navigate to other pages. Click the Database Tutorials tab above to view videos and help sheets on database searching. Use our OneSearch discovery search box below to begin searching for books, articles, videos and more, all within one search interface!
OneSearch is the library's online catalog and discovery search interface. Use the search box above to enter a title, author, subject, or keyword you want to research. Your search results will include books, journals, DVDs and other materials in the library, along with journal articles, e-books, streaming media, and many more items which are available via our online catalog.
OneSearch will search catalogs worldwide and retrieve items that are available from other libraries. If we do not have what you are looking, you may be able to borrow it from another library within our consortium, or you may place an interlibrary loan request using ILL Express Request.
For assistance with research or finding books and articles, please call, text, or email us via our Ask A Librarian service.
