During the month of February, the University Libraries will be offering trials of several databases, especially in the area of the health, nursing and psychotherapy. If you are working in these disciplines, take a look at these new resources and let us know if you would find them useful for your teaching and research.
CINAHL Complete – the definitive research tool for nursing and allied health professionals. With CINAHL Complete, users get fast and easy full-text access to top journals, evidence-based care sheets, quick lessons and more. Note, this is a more expansive collection than the CINAHL that the library currently subscribes to. (Through February 28.)
APA PsycTherapy – Streaming demonstration videos for teaching and learning psychotherapy techniques (Through March 5.)
Nursing & Allied Health Database – designed to support the teaching, learning, and research needs of nursing and allied health students and educators. Includes 360 full-length clinical skills videos. (Through March 5.)
LWW Nursing and Health Professions Premier Collection – Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins (a major publisher in health field) offers this collection of over 80 core nursing journals. Our trial will also include access to Emcare, a database of scholarly, peer-reviewed literature in nursing and allied health on the Ovid platform, with access to over 5 million records. (Through March 3.)
Library of Catholic Thought – The Library of Catholic Thought presents essential resources for studying the development of Catholic thought and theology, including works on the interaction between Catholicism and modern science, and on the history of Catholic moral theology. A key element of the Library is the new fully revised third edition of the Jerome Biblical Commentary, a 2 million-word project by leading Catholic biblical scholars that features a preface by Pope Francis and is digitally exclusive to the LOCT.
We will be providing trial access to one or two more databases during Trials Month and will alert faculty in the appropriate disciplines when these resources are available for review.
