New Nursing Student Orientation: Finding Information

How the University of Hawai'i at Manoa Library can help nursing students survive and thrive!

Where can I start searching?

OneSearch Manoa searches almost everything in UHM Library's collection. It searches through multiple databases and the UH Voyager Catalog at one time. Results include books, articles, conference papers, maps, government documents, DVDs, archives & manuscripts, and more.

What if the item is not available in the library?

  • If the book is checked out use the Get It > Recall this checked out item link to recall the book to the library so that you can check it out.
  • If the book is held by another library in the UH system use the Get It > Hold or transfer this item link to request the book from another UH System library. You must sign in with your UH username/password access to submit use
  • If the item isn't in OneSearch Manoa, request the book or article through Interlibrary Loan. The Interlibrary Loan office will usually be able to get the book or article for you from another library.

What if I need more information?

Consult the Nursing LibGuide to see a wide range of resources available to nursing students.

Where do I find journal articles for my assignment?

The two databases below are the best place to start your search for journal articles.

Where can I get help with searching for journal articles?

The resources below provide assistance with searching CINAHL and PubMed.

I found citations and abstracts, but how do I get the articles?

Click on the find it button which will direct you to the following:

  • A page with a link to an electronic version of the article if it is available from UH Manoa Library
  • A page with a link to a request form to get the item through Interlibrary Loan if the article is not available

If you are using CINAHL, you can also use the PDF Full Text or HTML Full Text links. If those links are not available, click on the find it button.

If you do not have a find it button readily available (e.g., citation listed in a printed bibliography), click on the E-Journals / E-Books link on the Library's home page. You then can search for your specific journal in the E-Resources gateway.
