Q

Do you have the journal Nursing from Lippincott?

Answer

The publisher does not make available the full text of that journal online through databases, but we can generally get articles from journals like that from other libraries that have it in print through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

COM Library offers Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to the students, faculty and staff of College of the Mainland. ILL basically involves COM Library requesting materials from other libraries. Keep in mind that ILLs can take 2-6 weeks. It can take longer depending on availability and other factors, and there is no guarantee that you will get the item requested. Requesting ILLs during summer sessions is generally not practical. There is no cost to the patron. If the only way to obtain an item is for a fee, COM Library will contact you to inform you of the cost, and ask how you wish to proceed.

Meanwhile, we have books, eBooks and databases with articles available for nursing research. Remember that you can't use sources older than 5 years for nursing. You can get more details from our Nursing LibGuide (link below), but here is a summary:

  • Books
    Use WorldCat to search for nursing books in COM Library.
  • eBooks
  • Use EBSCO eBooks to access eBooks on nursing.
  • Articles
    The definitive nursing database is CINAHL, but we have others that cover medical issues as well. You can access CINAHL and all our nursing databases from the Health & Nursing tab in the Databases by Subject LibGuide (link below). If you select EBSCO: All Health, Nursing & Medical Databases you will have the option to limit results to scholarly (peer reviewed) resources.
