New Resources!

Through PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries) and lottery funds, the library now has access to three new databases in the area of Healthcare and another collection of ebooks. They are;
  • Anatomy and Physiololgy Online This database covers all a student needs to know and learn for a 2 semester Anatomy & Physiology course.
  • AAFP Conditions A to Z  A handy patient-information tool that has been written and reviewed by physicians and patient education professionals at the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).
  • MedCalc 3000 A collection of over 520 calculators, clinical criteria sets and decision trees that are indispensable to anyone practicing, teaching or studying evidence-based medicine.
All three databases are powered by StatRef!, which is a premier e-source in the area of healthcare.

We also have access to ebrary, which is a collection of 100,000 ebooks from trusted publishers. Ebooks from ebrary cover all subject areas and can be searched by the usual keyword, title, author and subject. It can also be searched by document type, document language and publication year. Books from ebrary can be read online, on an iPhone, an iPad or and an iPod touch with ebrary app.

There are links to these new e-resources on the library homepage and all subject specific pages.
