Greetings from your Nursing Subject Specialist – also known as your Nursing Librarian!

2016 marks my 30th year of working at the University and the Health Sciences Library. As a graduate of the School of Nursing, I practiced clinically in adult health nursing for a decade before deciding to obtain a library science degree and marry my two loves – librarianship and nursing. Happily, it’s been a delightful and satisfying pleasure to support the diverse and exciting research needs of nursing scholars at all levels ever since.

As a large research institution, the University at Buffalo offers a vast array of information resources. We support the research needs of many health professions. I relish helping nurses in particular to navigate the library landscape. It continues to be a privilege to be an active participant in the evolving profession that is nursing. Consider me your experienced shepherd in the process of keeping up with the complex information world!

Essential Databases for Nursing Students

The UB Libraries provide access to hundreds of databases. Here are some essential electronic resources for nursing students at UB and beyond.

My colleagues and I are here for you. Consult with us in a variety of ways: chat, text, Skype, email, or phone. You can also stop by and find us – and a wealth of additional materials and educational services – at the Health Sciences Library.

As your library-based colleague, I am knowledgeable and eager to support your research needs. I look forward to helping you.
