Library Resources for nursing, medicine, and allied health

General Information

This page is designed to provide information about nursing, medicine, and allied health resources for students and faculty at the University of West Georgia. The Nursing Librarian, Jean Cook, can help you come up with searches, narrow down topics, and find resources.

For most nursing searches, we recommend starting with the following databases.  However, depending on your topic, many of our databases or ebooks could be helpful.  Explore our full range of services and resources in the left side menu.
