Library Resources for Health Science Students

The Library provides a wide range of services and resources to students enrolled in courses through the Office of Continuing Education and Distributed Learning.

Start at the Library website. It's your gateway to books, journal articles, online guides, etc. for your coursework. For help with specifics, use the following resources:

Need help with your Research?

Start your research by checking out the Public Health Subject Guide. The tabs across the top direct you to resources such as article databases, reference books (some online) and websites which are academic in nature.

Are you new to research or need a bit of a refresher? The Online Guides/Tutorials webpage has links to general library research guides and specific tutorials on everything from finding journal articles to evaluating websites to writing an annotated bibliography.

Searching for journal articles? Article Databases for Public Health search thousands of journals relevant to your studies. Accessing journals through the library’s website means that the full-text of the article will appear if we subscribe to it, and you can usually restrict your search to high quality academic sources.

Need help with Formatting?

Do you need to format your bibliography in APA style? Or MLA? Or Chicago? No problem. Zotero will organize, store and format your citations for you (and it can do it in over 200 styles!)

Live away from Lakehead?

Do you live 50 km or further away from Thunder Bay? Services for Distance Education explains what the Library has to offer you (including FREE delivery of books and journal articles right to your doorstep).
