LEARNING OUTCOMES 
 Students will be able to explain the difference between 
scholarly and non-scholarly research resources 
 Students will be able to demonstrate the use of research 
resources 
 Students will be able to list subject specific nursing 
databases 
 Students will utilize search strategies and resources 
discussed to begin article research for their academic needs
Evaluating information 
• When you pull an article, book or 
journal you want to make sure it is 
relevant to you and your specific 
information needs. 
• This could mean a lot of different 
things depending on the research 
topic. 
• Regardless of your research needs an 
easy way to make sure your 
information quality is appropriate is to 
make sure it passes the “CRAAP” Test 
• For example if your needs involve a 
Peer Reviewed academic article, it 
would most likely pass the CRAAP 
test without critical investigation. But if 
you found a great Health/Nursing 
article on the open web or even a 
blog, you would want to make sure it 
passes as well as doing more due 
diligence on the author to check their 
creditability
Use this 
worksheet 
as a way to 
test your 
information 
resources.
Information Gathering: The research 
process 
1. Identify Information resources to access: E.G, Specific 
Databases, Journals and more. 
2. Break down research idea or topic into searchable 
phrases 
3. Identify Keywords to search 
4. Use AND to Connect Search Terms for a more specific 
retrieval process 
5. Use OR with alternative keywords for a larger but less 
precise information recall
Search tips 
 Potential 
Research idea: 
 How to deal with the 
emotionally draining 
effects of tending for 
the patients under a 
nurses care; what are 
the most effective 
coping procedures for 
nurses? 
 Break down 
the idea or 
research topic 
into keywords, 
EG: 
 Emotional effects, 
coping procedures, 
nurses, patients 
 Use synonyms when 
searching to retrieve better 
results 
 Use technical and subject 
specific professional terms 
when applicable
Searching Tips 
• Have you ever found an article that 
was perfect? 
• Wish you had more just like it? With a 
little research you will. 
• Footnote chasing is the act of 
finding citations and references in 
your current article and using these 
articles for your research.
Chase those Footnotes
INFORMATION RESOURCES 
Print & General Resources 
 Books & Journals: 
http://librarycatalog.uah.edu 
 ILLIAD: http://libguides.uah.edu/ill 
 Libraryguides:

 OneSearch: http://www.uah.edu/library
ONESEARCH WALK THROUGH 
When you visit the Library web page one of the first things you will see is the 
Big search box called OneSearch 
OneSearch is a relatively new feature which searches the majority of our 
Databases, journals, and catalog at one time 
This is great place to begin your research, but don’t end it here. OneSearch big it will retrieve a lot of information which isn’t pertinent to your research 
needs. Begin here with a quick search and see if you can find anything relevant then move onto a subject specific database 
The next few slides will be a walk through and tutorial of using OneSearch. Most 
Databases are designed similarly and if you can access information on Onesearch 
you can access it anywhere.
Simply enter your research topic into the search 
interface. Use Keywords for a better result.
If the article has a blue “Find it at UAH” we have 
access to the article, often in full-text which is 
accessible from your computer 
On the left 
side you can 
limit your 
search to 
full text (which 
means it will 
only Retrieve 
articles 
accessible 
fully online), 
Peer reviewed, 
date and more. 
This is a great 
way to narrow 
your search 
and make it 
more relevant. 
The article in its full form is available as a PDF.
The abstract is an overview of 
the article. Always read the 
abstract first to see if the article 
is relevant to your needs. 
Full text version 
of the article will 
be placed here. 
This is the tools bar which lets you 
create a folder for your articles, print, 
email, save, cite and more with your 
information. Most databases have this 
feature. Keep an eye out because they 
are valuable tools.
General Databases 
Remember you can access this information remotely! 
• Academic Search Complete 
• Wiley Online Library 
• Opposing viewpoints 
• JSTOR 
• Google Scholar
General Databases cont.

Nursing resources & research tutorial

  • 1. Nursing Resources & Research Tutorial: Distance Learners Instruction, Reference & Distance Education Librarian Seth M. Porter
  • 2. Tutorial Outline  Learning Outcomes  Evaluating Information  The Research Process  Searching Tips  Research Resources  Nursing Specific Resources  Organizational Resources & Tools  Contact Information
  • 3. LEARNING OUTCOMES  Students will be able to explain the difference between scholarly and non-scholarly research resources  Students will be able to demonstrate the use of research resources  Students will be able to list subject specific nursing databases  Students will utilize search strategies and resources discussed to begin article research for their academic needs
  • 4. Evaluating information • When you pull an article, book or journal you want to make sure it is relevant to you and your specific information needs. • This could mean a lot of different things depending on the research topic. • Regardless of your research needs an easy way to make sure your information quality is appropriate is to make sure it passes the “CRAAP” Test • For example if your needs involve a Peer Reviewed academic article, it would most likely pass the CRAAP test without critical investigation. But if you found a great Health/Nursing article on the open web or even a blog, you would want to make sure it passes as well as doing more due diligence on the author to check their creditability
  • 5. Use this worksheet as a way to test your information resources.
  • 6. Information Gathering: The research process 1. Identify Information resources to access: E.G, Specific Databases, Journals and more. 2. Break down research idea or topic into searchable phrases 3. Identify Keywords to search 4. Use AND to Connect Search Terms for a more specific retrieval process 5. Use OR with alternative keywords for a larger but less precise information recall
  • 7. Search tips  Potential Research idea:  How to deal with the emotionally draining effects of tending for the patients under a nurses care; what are the most effective coping procedures for nurses?  Break down the idea or research topic into keywords, EG:  Emotional effects, coping procedures, nurses, patients  Use synonyms when searching to retrieve better results  Use technical and subject specific professional terms when applicable
  • 8. Searching Tips • Have you ever found an article that was perfect? • Wish you had more just like it? With a little research you will. • Footnote chasing is the act of finding citations and references in your current article and using these articles for your research.
