Faculty Dissertations-Renee Devries

Library on Instagram!

It seems as if each time we leave a testing period, another one is right on its heels. I don't think we've had a non-testing period longer than a week or two since mid-terms. We're in a bit of a break now but come the first week of April, finals will begin again. Please check out our hours for finals and break. In addition, see what relaxing activities the library has planned for that period.

We're also conducting a library survey that runs every other year. We'd appreciate you leaving any feedback you have for us to let us know how we're meeting your needs and if there's anything we could do to improve services. It's short and only open a week.

Did you ever wish you could find out what your favorite journals are publishing each month? There are a few ways you can. Check out our "Getting More From Your Favorite Journals" section to find out how.

Last but not least, the library is on Instagram and we have a bound copy of Dr. Devries's dissertation.

Relaxation for Finals

Coloring and Reiki

The library will once again look to do some "relaxing" activities for finals.

So far we plan on offering:


Adult coloring books are becoming increasingly more popular for stress relief. The library has downloaded a series of designs that can be colored in the library.

Look for them at the front desk and even on tables during the two weeks of finals. Some colored pencils will be available for checkout, but we suggest you bring your own if you have them


Monica Howell, who is the library's serials tech and archivist, is also a practicing massage therapist and reiki practitioner (and acupuncture student.) She will be offering free mini reiki sessions during finals (approximately 5 minutes). The schedule has not been set but please check Facebook and the library doors for signs indicating the hours she'll be available and how to nab an appointment.

Library Survey

The library survey is now out. It will be up for a week.

We would really appreciate if you would fill it out. It's pretty quick. It's about 18 questions and may take you 10-15 minutes at most. Maybe even less if you're fast.

The library thanks you!

Journal Table of Contents

Do you have a journal you like and would like to know what is published in each issue? Many journal sites these days allow you to sign up for a free account to get information about the journals, such as table of contents (a.k.a TOC, ETOC or Alerts), e-mailed directly to you.

You can see if we subscribe to the journal using our e-journal finder. Or you can choose a journal we don't subscribe to and use our interlibrary loan service to access articles of interest.

The role of trust in creating sustainable change through interorganizational collaborations in health care education

Dr. Renee Devries recently earned her PhD in organizational leadership, policy and development with a focus on higher education from the University of Minnesota’s College of Education and Human Development.

The focus of her dissertation was the role of trust in interorganizational collaborations. She focused on three chiropractic schools who had partnered with high activity research institutions thanks to a grant.

She has generously donated a copy of her dissertation to the library's archives which you can request. You may also read it online here.

If you have written a book or dissertation and would like the library to have a copy, please e-mail Anne Mackereth ( We'd love to have it.

The library is on Instagram!

The library has recently joined Instagram. You can follow us at @nwhsulib or look at our feed online.

We're still exploring what content to include but so far we have student projects completed in the library, items from our archives and more. Let us know if there's anything you'd like to see.
