The purpose of this guide is to help you locate nursing resources in the collections of the USM libraries. It is a selective, not a comprehensive, guide. Depending on your specific area of research, it may also be useful to check guides in related fields.
In order to find books, journal titles, videos, government documents and other materials held in the University of Maine System you will need to consult URSUS, the online catalog of USM and the University of Maine System..
If you do not know the exact subject heading describing the topic you need, try doing a keyword search using other word/s related to that topic and then click on the subject heading links found within the relevant records to find additional, useful resources.
If you need a book that is not available through the University of Maine System (URSUS) or MaineCat , you can request it via Interlibrary Loan (Illiad).
I hope this guide will be useful as you navigate the resources available at the University of Southern Maine Libraries. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
