In addition to this library guide for your subject, please see our Library Guide to Services for Studying at Home. These pages have been created to help you to use library services online whilst the physical University Library is closed as part of the national emergency response to COVID-19.
You may also find our COVID-19 FAQs helpful.
Here you'll find lots of information on how to find books and journal articles for your assignments, how to reference, and how to get help when you get stuck.
If you can't find what you need here or get stuck, use the contact information on the right of this page to get in touch with the library's Human and Health Sciences subject team. We'll get back to you as soon as we can.
The Library subscribes to a number of RCN titles in print and you can find these on our shelves. The RCN also provides a large collection of selected articles from all its publication online. However, the precise content of this collection regularly changes and for this reason we can’t provide access to the online content via Summon. All titles require University network login.
UPDATE: our subscriptions have changed. Please see below.
You can search through and access our RCN subscriptions, on or off campus by clicking here. The following are the titles we currently subscribe to:
If you are planning to research COVID-19 as an academic or as a research student, the following resource may be of use to you. It collates search strategies already carried out by NHS librarians to answer COVID-19 related research questions to help avoid duplication of searches.
You can find loads on Summon, but as nursing students, you are expected to get used to searching individual resources separately. The ones listed below are some of the key resources you'll want to use, but don't be afraid to try ones listed on other health subject guides if they are more specific to your topic (e.g. operating department practice or midwifery).
For a full list of databases see our A-Z list of electronic resources.
The list of which journals we subscribe to is available through our journals search page
