Tips for searching the catalog:

  • Use simple words or phrases in quotations, like "evidence-based nursing" or "health care reform".
  • Where are the Nursing books?  Most will be in the R section, and RT section in particular. Familiarize yourself with the LC classification system, used by most academic libraries.  Related sections are: 
  • QM (Human Anatomy)

  • QR (Microbiology)
