This month, RMU Library is trialing several different eResources — a nursing database, and two different eReference resources.
UpToDate synthesizes medical information into practical, evidence-based, point-of-care recommendations. Compare it with DynaMed, a similar product and current RMU Library subscription.
Statistical Abstracts Global and Statistical Abstract Historical
This trial provides online access to Statistical Abstracts of the U.S., Statistical Abstracts of the World, and digital historical access to Statistical Abstracts of the U.S. (1970-2012)
Europa World Online
This is the online version of the Europa World Year Book. It is a classic reference source covering world affairs, providing political and economic information for over 250 countries.
The above-listed database trial links are accessible from on campus or off campus; links to these database trials can be found on the Library’s Databases A-Z page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-alphabetical).
Additional links to Statistical Abstract and Europa World Online can be found on the Databases – Social Sciences page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-social-science) and Databases – General & Interdisciplinary page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-general-interdisciplinary)
An additional link to UpToDate can be found on the Databases – Nursing & Health Sciences page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-nursing-health-sciences)
We invite RMU students, staff, and faculty to check out these potential library subscriptions and to pass along any feedback you may wish to share (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks!
