Internet Research Guides

Use this guide as a starting point for any of your research papers on nursing or health sciences coursework. Remember to write down or cut-and-paste the bibliographic information (e.g., title of work, author, publisher, date and place of publication and page numbers), for any resource you might use in your research paper. It’s always easier to throw away extra, unused bibliographic citations than it is to have to re-locate your resource an hour before the paper is due!
