NEW!  Featured Resources!   The Library of RUMC has launched a program highlighting our electronic resources, one at a time.  We begin this series with CINAHL, one of our most popular databases.


What is it?  CINAHL stands for the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature.  It is a collection of almost six million records in an easy-to-search format.

Why use it? Easy-to-use search boxes let you retrieve peer-reviewed articles and citations, focusing on nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies and other allied health fields.

Bonus:  Do you need to earn Continuing Education credits?  CINAHL has online modules for just that purpose.   CINAHL also offers evidence-based “Patient Care Sheets” which feature pointers on the latest healthcare information on over 200 medical conditions.

Want to learn more?  Attend our webinar Tuesday April 17th at 11:00!  Just login from the library’s website.  Our website also has video tutorials and step-by-step printable instructions.
