  • To get to the HPD Library homepage, you would click on the word Libraries in the left-hand column
  • Next you will see a list of the 4 NSU Libraries. The homepage I will introduce is for the HPD Library, but the Library catalog will search the resources of all 4.
  • This is the new HPD Library Homepage. I recommend that you bookmark this site. It has been redesigned to allow for accessibility from the homepage for the most popular services/resources….searching the Library catalog, list of the NSU Health & Medicine databases and a Link to AMA & APA Citation pages
  • The most important thing I want to emphasize to you today is my contact information. I have included the toll free number for NSU & my direct extension.
  • Here are some examples.CINAHL contains citations and abstracts from the literature of nursing and allied health. It includes full-text for more than 620 journals, legal cases, drug records, research instruments, clinical trials, and more.ISI Web of Knowledge consists of a science, a social sciences and an arts & humanities index. The databases contain information gathered from thousands of scholarly journals, books, book series, reports and conferences.Medline is the National Library of Medicine’s premiere search system for health information and includes over 17 million citations from the fields of medicine, nursing, dentistry, veterinary medicine, the health care system, and preclinical sciences.
