The mission of the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences Library is to support the professional development of health care providers by supplying information products and resources relevant to the curricula of the University programs and helping students, faculty, and staff make use of those products and resources. Library staff, made up of professional librarians and trained support staff on each campus of the University, aim to fulfill this mission by discovering, acquiring, organizing, disseminating, interpreting, using, and teaching information and information seeking skills pursuant to the mission of the University.
The University Library consists a physical branch at each campus in addition to online resources including databases, journal subscriptions, recommended websites, and tutorial videos.
Try Search USA, a library tool that searches multiple databases and other sources all in one place, to start your literature search. Search USA is great for quick and convenient searches, as well as library beginners who want a search engine experience.
The Library also provides access to online databases that provide either full text access to journal articles, citations for journal articles, or both. For more information on using Library resources to find journal articles, please see the Online Resources page on the myUSA Library portal page, or contact the Library. Additionally, feel free to explore our videos, tech tool recommendations, and writing and referencing resources.
In addition to providing resources and materials, the University Library also provides services to students, faculty, and staff. Library instruction sessions are held with students and faculty in conjunction with a course, voluntarily online or on site, and one-on-one by request. We hold webinars monthly. The Library’s document request services can connect faculty and students with journal articles and books not held in our own collection, but available at one of over one thousand libraries with whom we partner across North America through the National Library of Medicine’s Docline system.
