From general topics lice biology to a section on communicable diseases, as well as sections for all of the systems of the body, there is help on this page for your medical questions. Each of the entries has a link to the resource as well as a short description of what type of information you can find in that resource.

  • Lippincott’s Video Series: Nursing Procedures 2009Step by step guidance for nursing procedures that are performed in realistic clinical settings. Each video reviews key points, shows the procedures, and provides procedure modification for unexpected situations.
  • New England Journal of Medicine: Videos in Clinical MedicineA collection of instructional videos that guide clinical health care professionals through the steps, different approaches, and techniques involved in a variety of procedures. Videos are supplemented by reference materials, cited articles, and written overviews of the video.

This page is a good resource for reference and research questions, but it also contains information on grant and funding resources. If what you are looking for is specifically funding information the Online Reference Resource guide does have a page dedicated just to grants and funding as well as links to the financial aid and scholarship resource office.

Getting full text through Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a great resource for a lot of things — however, at first glance, it might not seem like it’s very easy to get access to the full text of most articles.

But did you know that you can have Google Scholar provide you with the same Article Linker button that you click to access full text in other databases like PubMed? Which means you can easily access all of our subscription articles — right from Google Scholar?!

It’s super easy. You just have to turn this function on. (It’s best if you’re signed into your Google account in your web browser, so that your browser remembers this setting every time you open it. Cookies must also be enabled on your browser in order for this to work.)

Go to scholar.google.com. Click the “settings” button at the top of the page.

Type “anschutz” into the search bar, then click the search button. Our library should come up. Click the checkbox, and then click save. (Leave the “WorldCat” option checked too).

That’s it! You’re done! Now when you search in Google Scholar, the results page should look like this:

You can click those “Full Text @ CU Anschutz” buttons to check and see if we have a subscription that gives us access to the full text of the article. When you’re off campus and you click those buttons, you should be prompted to log in using your CU Anschutz (PassportID) credentials in order to access full text.

If we don’t have an article you want, feel free to request it through Interlibrary Loan.

Remember, if you’re having trouble, please don’t hesitate to ask us for help!

How Not to Die

by Michael Greger, MD

From the physician behind the wildly popular Web site NutritionFacts.org, reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.

The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of premature death–-illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and others–-claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. …you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to help prevent or fight these diseases and to live longer.
