This guide will help you find relevant databases, books, journals, websites and specialist resources for your research in nursing. This guide supports the postgraduate nursing programme taught from University of Otago Christchurch, but is is mainly intended for Otago and Southland-based students.
Please explore the tabs along the top for tips on finding specific types of resources.
You can also make an appointment to see us, your subject specialist librarians, if you'd like some support with your research.
The guide is always a work in progress, so I welcome suggestions for additional content.
UpToDate is an evidence-based, physician-authored clinical decision support resource for use at the point-of-care. More than 6,000 world-renowned physician authors, editors, and peer reviewers use a rigorous editorial process to synthesize the most recent medical information into trusted, evidence-based recommendations that are proven to improve patient care and quality.
UpToDate is now available to ALL students off-campus through the new student desktop. To connect to the new desktop from off campus, go to www.otago.ac.nz/studentdesktop.
You can find links to UpToDate on either the article databases list http://www.otago.ac.nz/library/databases/results.php?letter=u, the Medicine subject guide http://otago.libguides.com/medicine or the EBM for General Practice subject guide http://otago.libguides.com/ebmgp.
