Introduction to AHSL Resources & Services

A guide for finding and using library resources at the University of Arizona.

Google to find an article?

Google can be used to quickly find a specific article. Put the entire title in quotes in the searchbox. Often the NCBI/PubMed record is one of the first results. From PubMed link to the fulltext if it's licensed by the library

Google Web Search

Journal Dates of coverage

eJournals are licensed  in "packages" or collections. An ejournal may be available in more than one. Use dates of coverage to choose the appropriate collection to link to the journal.

Don't find an ebook?

The eTextbook Searchbox searches only a selection of the health sciences textbooks in the AHSL digital library. To search for ebooks, use advanced library search. Type in your keywords, title or author name and limit material type to "books". Once you have your results, select "Full text online" under "Show only" in the left hand sidebar. There are many e-book platforms so your experience will be somewhat different in each.

Library search

Library search is the most effective way to search for print and electronic resources (books, journals, videos, etc.) that are owned or licensed by the libraries at the UA, including the Arizona Health Sciences Library.
