Located in Dallas, the Nursing Learning Resource Center (NLRC) specializes in nursing information and supports faculty research and student study at the Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing (BULHSON).
This Nursing LRC Tools for Success research guide is a highly selective list of helpful resources to get you started and introduce you to some of the resources that are available for use through the NLRC. It is not the only place to look for nursing or health information. Ask the NLRC librarian for more suggestions.
The guide also provides some Quick Tips to aid in using the resources and may be particularly helpful to first-semester nursing students.
Important Note: Not all links will take you directly into the resource. You may have to click another time at the next link, log in with your BearID, or register with the resource.
Some Unexpected Things
Baylor University Libraries
The University Libraries home page is a great place to link to helps, tips, FAQs, research help and many resources not specifically related to nursing. On the Baylor University Libraries page, the OneSearch search box is prominent.
OneSearch is a discovery resource that provides a single place to search most of the content available from the Baylor University Libraries, including: the online catalog (books, journal titles, media, etc.); the Baylor Digital Collections; BEARdocs, (electronic theses and dissertations, honors theses, technical reports, faculty publications, etc.); research guides; and -- most importantly, much of the full text content to which the Baylor Libraries subscribe from a wide variety of sources. OneSearch does not replace the many subject-specific databases to which the Baylor Libraries subscribe; it supplements and complements those resources.
Baylor University Libraries Research Guides
Many research guides have been created and compiled by Baylor University Librarians on a variety of topics, from specific subjects or class resources to more general useful resources, such as locating a citation's DOI (digital object identifier) or copyright. Take a look through the guides to see if there are any on the topic(s) of interest to you and check back periodically to see if any new guides of interest to you have been added. In this guide, there is a section on other research guides selected because they might be of interest to nursing students.
The Nursing LRC has a professional medical librarian available to answer questions and provide research assistance weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
