Health Sciences Library
- Getting an Interlibrary Loan Since the College of Nursing has six campuses across Saskatchewan, you may want to request the library send you a copy of a book, a chapter from a book or a journal article. If the library does not have the book or journal you are looking for, you can fill out the interlibrary loan form to request the library to find this item and send it to you. Watch and learn more.
- Getting Started with the Health Sciences LibraryTake a virtual tour of the Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library website. Learn how to access the library through PAWS, login, use the navigation links and visit the Nursing Subject Guide or LibGuide. (Note: The Libguide platform has changed and will look different from this video). Learn how to check the library hours, request materials, access resources on mobile devices and find handouts and tutorials for various resources.
- Searching the Catalogue One of the tabs in the Library page is Catalogue. This tab allows you to search the catalogue for various formats of resources - print, electronic, audio/visual, etc. Learn how to search using the Word, Title or Subject options and what the difference is in using one over the other. Also, learn how to put an item on hold in the catalogue.
- Using Citation FinderIf you have a citation of an article and would like to see whether it is available through the library, one easy way to find it is through the Citation Finder. Watch this video to learn more.
- Using the Articles and Databases Tab During the course of your nursing program, you will be asked to produce assignments, literature reviews, etc. To work on assignments, you'll need to know how to find the right databases to find articles. Learn how to use this tab, find an A-Z list of databases and how to access databases.
- Using the E-Journals Tab Learn how to access the electronic journals in the catalogue using the E-Journals tab. If you have the title of the journal, volume, issue and the title of an article you need to retrieve full-text for a class, this is a must watch.
- Using USearch USearch is like Google, but for just U of S Library resources. It only searches what is available through the Library catalogue. When you are unsure where to start your scholarly search, start with USearch.
- What is MesH? To be an efficient searcher, you need to know how to search articles using MeSH - Medical Subject Headings. In CINAHL, these headings are called CINAHL Headings. Watch this video to learn more about MeSH and how to use it to find the most relevant articles.
