A guide for finding nursing resources and information

The resources on this page will help you gather the information you need for the Cultural Awareness Ethics and Gerontology papers. If you get stuck finding sources, please contact a librarian!

Gerontology Paper

These items are available on Course Reserves in the Learning Commons. Ask for them at the Service Desk.

The following is a list of magazines that are available either electronically or in print through the NNU Riley Library. Print items are located on the second floor of the Learning Commons, west side. Ask a librarian or someone at the Learning Commons Service Desk for assistance in locating the periodicals. Item titles that are hyperlinked will take you the database where you can search within the publication. For example, for Christianity Today, you could search AIDS and it would pull up the articles discussing the AIDS issue in the 1980's and early 1990's. A sample interview question might be, "How did the AIDS outbreak impact your community or church?"

These items are available in the main stacks of the Library in the Learning Commons. Use the call number listed to locate the item on the shelf. If you need assistance in locating the item, ask a librarian or someone at the Learning Commons Service Desk.
