Please contact Inga Moten for any questions at (334) 229-1074 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For assistance while in the Library, visit the Health Sciences Desk on the 4th floor. That phone number is (334) 229-6827.
Sources in the Library's Health Sciences Reference Collection can be found in the shelving area behind the Health Sciences Desk. Browse the Health Sciences Reference for books starting with the call numbers below. The same call numbers correspond with materials in other collections in the Library.
Books, videos, and materials located in the Library can be found on HORNetCat, the Library's online catalog. Items may be searched by title, author, keyword, or subject.
The best method for finding journal articles is to use the Library's online databases. For additional information on those listed below and for others, explore our list of Databases. They are easily accessible off campus by clicking on the database name and typing in the information requested. If you need additional assistance with accessing the databases, contact Cedric Davis (334 229-6998).
Not all of our databases provide access to the entire text of articles. If the text of an article is not available in a database, check for the periodical title in E-Journal Finder (ASU) to determine if the article is available in another online database. Periodicals to which the Library subscribes are listed in the Library's online Local Catalog. These are housed in the Serials Department on the third floor. You may order those articles not available in the Library or via a full-text database through Interlibrary Loan.
Databases that provide related information are listed. For a complete of list of databases that support the Health Sciences, click on the Electronic Databases link from the Library's Home Page.
You will use the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association to cite your sources. A copy of the Manual is available at the Reference Desk on the first floor of the Library. Additional assistance with citing electronic publications is available from the APA online site.
