LCC Research Databases for Nursing (also available off-campus)
Open Access Databases
These journals are scholarly, peer-reviewed research, just like journals in the LCC databases. The difference is that open access articles are paid for by the government, foundations, or advertisers. Many articles (but not all) are freely available to readers.
Professional Nursing Blogs
PeaceHealth Library is a specialized medical library, offering scholarly journals, reference books, consumer health information, and Spanish language resources. To browse their journals, go to the PeaceHealth Electronic Journals page. If you find an article at PeaceHealth that's not available at LCC, you'll need to go in person to the PeaceHealth Library in Springfield, or request the article via Interlibrary Loan.
Google Scholar can help you find resources for academic research papers. Keep in mind that Google Scholar misses a lot of material that's only available by subscription. If you're asked to to pay for access to articles, look up the title of the journal where the article was published in the LCC Library Catalog to see if you have access to it for free.
If you have trouble accessing an article, ask a librarian to help!
