Welcome

Hours (Midterms and Holidays)

New E-Journal Finder

Workshop

Archives Display


Welcome to 2019.


The library's hours will change with the upcoming holidays. We'll be closed on MLK Jr. Day and be open limited hours on Presidents' Day. Be sure you mark your calendar for those days as well as special hours for midterms.


If you know you will have a project involving citations coming up soon, come to our Mendeley workshop next week to learn how to organize your citations and create a bibliography in Word. If you can't make it that day, contact the library to make an appointment for a one-on-one Mendeley lesson--or any paper or library-related help.


The library has a new full text finder (otherwise known as publication finder or e-journal finder). It works very similarly to our old system but has a bit of a different look. You'll be able to find full text on our web page, Google Scholar and PubMed.


Have you ever thought of self-publishing? The archives display has self-publishing examples from the CAM professions.

Introduction to Mendeley Workshop

Jan. 22 at noon in the library classroom.


Mendeley is a citation management system that is free to not only students but members of the general public. If you have a research paper coming up which involves storing and citing a large number of references, Mendeley could be the perfect tool for you. Stop by to learn more about it.


If none of these times work for you, never forget that you can contact Krista Jacobson at kjacobson@nwhealth.edu (or library@nwhealth.edu) to set up an independent consultation for Mendeley or research services to meet your specific needs.

Find full text in online journals

The library has switched vendors for finding which electronic journals we have. This doesn't mean much to the average user as they work very similarly. It's just the look that has changed.


To find which journals we have online/electronically:


  1. Go to our e-journal page. (You may see it referred to as full-text-finder or publication finder as well.)
  2. Type in the title of the journal you're looking for. (Not the article title.)
  3. If you're off campus, you may need to log in (email address + email password)
  4. If full text is available, click on the "Full Text Access" link and the access points will be available.
  5. If there are multiple access points, select the access point with the coverage dates that match when the article you're looking for was published.
  6. Go to the vendor or publisher site, find the year/month (or volume/issue) when the article was published. The full text should be available.
  7. If we don't have the journal online (or in print), you can submit an interlibrary loan request where it can be accessed from another library.

This semester’s library and archives exhibit is on self-publishing in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Some CAM practitioners and patients believe that regular (or “allopathic”) medicine doesn’t adequately publicize CAM and doesn’t teach people how to take care of their own health. A few of the people who feel this way decide to create their own health and medical publications. The exhibit features the Palmer School of Chiropractic’s printery, a 12th century Chinese medicine book, massage therapy magazines from the 1980s, NWHSU’s self-published history book, and some health-related zines that can be read in the library. Maybe you’ll be inspired to write your own zine!
