Nursing and Midwifery


Welcome to the subject guide for Nursing and Midwifery. Here you'll find help locating books and articles together with tips about using the resources listed under the Journals and Databases tab.  New books recently added to the Collegiate Library are also located within this guide.

Article Databases

A bibliographic database indexes the contents of academic journals and allows you to find out which journals have published articles about a particular topic.  You will find your key databases by selecting the Journals and Databases tab which also includes evidence based medicine (EBM) resources e.g. The Cochrane Library.
