As a Nursing student, you will mostly be using Nursing professional literature but you might also want to use databases from other disciplines. For instance, insurance, employee management, or hospital as a business questions are best covered in a Business database like ABI/INFORM. Each of our databases covers a different selection of journals, so try multiple databases even in the same discipline.
Many dissertations are listed in the subject databases listed above such as CINAHL and Proquest Nursing. Dissertations can also be requested for free using the ILLiad system.
Online citation managers are used for storing, sharing, organizing, and citing sources from the databases and other research areas. We recommend free, well supported services like Zotero and Mendeley.
The Journals button tells you which journals are in which databases. For instance, if you were searching for Nursing Education Perspectives, simply type the name into the search box under the Journals button. A listing of databases that index the journal will be displayed, along with coverage dates and also any embargo information. You will need your myUWG username and password to access them from off campus.
