Library Information for Nursing
As a student of the University of Saskatchewan, you have remote access to a number of electronic resources through the University of Saskatchewan Library.
The Health Sciences Library website has links to all of the library databases, electronic journals and the library catalogue. The website also includes online reference, library hours, staff contacts and a link to renew library materials. Note: any journal article or book not held at U of S can always be obtained on your behalf from another library. There is no charge for this service.
For information about library resources and services related specifically to nursing, access the Nursing Research Guide.
Guide to U of S Databases and Electronic Journals
A complete list of databases is located on the website, as well as a list of databases that are specific to the health sciences. The Library also maintains a database of online journals here, in which you can retrieve full text articles anywhere there is an Internet connection.

Find Nursing Articles with CINAHL
The Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL) is the definitive nursing database providing full text for more than 560 journals and abstracts and indexing for over 3,000 journals covering nursing & allied health topics.
Learn how to organize your references and use a reference manager (such as RefWorks, EndNote or Zotero) to make it easy to create in-text citations and bibliographies in any style you want. For information about reference managers, see http://libguides.usask.ca/nursing/references.
