Where are print nursing books @ MSU?

The nursing print collection, which consists mostly of books, is located in the Main Library.

Most nursing books start with the call number RT. Books with RT call numbers are located in the basement of the Main Library (follow the yellow tape!).


Finding Books

To find books, you'll want to search the MSU Libraries' Catalog.

MSU Libraries Catalog - Keyword Search

  • Books can be found by completing a keyword search of the MSU Libraries' Catalog (on the right side of the Health Sciences Digital Library webiste: www.lib.msu.edu/health).
  • When you find a book you're interested in, note the Location, Call Number, and Status.
  • There's no one correct way to search by Keyword - it's very important to try different words and phrases.
  • The two keyword search options (beta and classic) retrieve the same information, but display the results differently.
  • Some keyword search examples include: nursing research, evidence based nursing, advanced nursing practice, wound care, Neuman systems model, etc. 

 

MSU Libraries Catalog - Author Search

  • Books can be found by completing an author search of the MSU Libraries' Catalog (on the right side of the Health Sciences Digital Library webiste: www.lib.msu.edu/health).
  • Enter the author's last name first into the Catalog Quick Search and select Author from the dropdown. Entering a first name or initial after the last name is optional.


MSU Libraries Catalog - Advanced Search

  • The Advanced Search features several ways to search and limit retrieved results.
