To find articles by topic, search by keyword in one of the library's nursing-related research databases. These databases index articles in a large number of nursing and medical journals by topic, and allow you to search for articles by keyword. If you are off-campus, you will be asked to enter your name and library barcode number. Enter your name as firstname lastname (put a space between your first and last name NOT a dot) and the 14 digit library barcode on your Salve ID.
