Welcome to the Health Sciences Library Research Module!

This research module is meant to provide students in the College of Health Professions, the College of Nursing, and Saint Vincent's College with an introduction to the main resources available through the SHU Library and also how to effectively utilize them for research. It can also serve as a refresher for students who have already been introduced to library resources and essential database search strategies.

  • Identify the major relevant library and open web health science resources that you can use for research assignments and major projects 
  • Construct searches using simple and advanced strategies to find the appropriate information for your research needs
  • Recognize and search with several key search tools available to you through the library's website

The module, which includes videos, tutorials, and checkpoints, is designed to be completed in an hour. You can complete it at your own pace.
