10 Things Students Should Know about the Health Sciences Library: Home

Find resources

5  ONESEARCH: OneSearch is the main search box on the library homepage. You can use it to find books, articles, and more. Enter your search terms to get a list of results, and then use the options on the left hand side of the screen to refine your results.

HEALTH DATABASES: For most health literature searches, you'll want to seek articles in one of our specialized health databases, such as PubMed. Our subject guides may also be a good place to start.

RESERVES: For instructions on finding reserve readings, see #8 below.
