  • CINAHL Plus with Full-Text: Scholarly nursing and allied health database in a new interface.
    • Search using keyword smart searching, by publication, or with improved guided subject searching using standardized medical terminology.
    • Combine terms using AND, OR and NOT EX: "diabetes and children" will return results with both terms, "diabetes or blood sugar" will return results with either term, and "diabetes not children" will get rid of anything about children.
    • New "Narrow Results By" tabs to improve searching capabilities and provided targeted results.
  • ProQuest Central - Health and Medicine: Our largest comprehensive database, with extensive coverage in health and medicine.  Roughly the same searching methods as CINAHL.
