NCC's Library has access to several databases related to the allied health sciences and respiratory therapy. Below is the list of approved peer-reviewed journals given to you by Prof. Sparaco. Next to it are the links to NCC's Library's database which gives you access to the journal.
If you want a complete list of the Library's Databases, it can be found here: http://ncc.libguides.com/az.php
You will notice that most of the journals are found in CINAHL and MEDLINE, those two databases are indexes, which also give you full text access to many journals. Sometimes, you will notice that you can get the full text immediately however, other times you will see that you can only get the citation. CINAHL and MEDLINE only have access to certain publication dates of the journals and articles. So if the article you want falls outside of the publications or dates that we have access to, you may have to borrow the article from another library (sometimes called ILL). Instructions on how to borrow an article or resource from another library are listed in the box "We don't have full text, what's next?" below.
American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine (CINAHL)* See note below
Current Diagnosis & Treatment in Pulmonary Medicine
*The online version of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine is not currently working. Use CINAHL to retrieve the citation, and take the citation to L102, where you can find it in our print collection.
You can use the databases and holdings list from home! When prompted, enter your username (N #) and password (PIN).
Sometimes an article is not available in full text in the database. You may have an abstract (summary) or just a citation. If you cannot find another article, or you feel that this article is best suited for your research, you have a few options.
If you see, "Link to Full Text" click on the link to retrieve the article from another database.
The article might be available in our print collections. If the full text link says the article is available in print, you must fill out a request slip and go to the Reserve Desk on the first floor of the Library. Once you have the article, you can make a photocopy for your assignment.
If the article is not available through the NCC Library, you will see the "Request through Interlibrary Loan" option. Click on the link.
