Recommended Databases

The Shapiro Library subscribes numerous databases filled with scholarly articles, book chapters, research reports, statistics, and more from thousands of respected publications. The following is a list of some of the best database for doing research on the subject of nursing:

A-Z Database List

You can see a complete list of all the databases the library subscribes to on our A-Z Database List. The A-Z Database List page includes an alphabetical list of all the databases the library subscribes to as well as databases grouped together by subject (e.g. "Business") or type (e.g. "Course Guides").

Interlibrary Loan

If you identify articles within certain journals that are not owned by SNHU's Shapiro Library, you can request that we borrow them from another library using our Interlibrary Loan service. This is a free service to members of the SNHU community, including students, faculty, and staff.

Through Interlibrary Loan, we can borrow items such as journal articles, books, newspaper articles, and other circulating materials.

Presently we can borrow most articles via electronic requests and email delivery.  We typically can turn around journal article requests in 3 to 5 business days, although it may sometimes take longer.  Start your research early in order to give yourself enough time to use Interlibrary Loan, if necessary.
