New library database: R2 Digital Library

This past month Warner Library added a new database to our collection. R2 Digital Library provides health science ebooks with collections that focus on medical, nursing and allied health. Publishers represented in this resource include Springer, Wiley-Blackwell, Elsevier Health Sciences, Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, and many more.  We subscribe to over 300 ebooks through R2, with an emphasis on nursing. The simple-to-use interface allows you to browse by topic or search by a drug, publication title, or condition.

Once you’ve located an ebook of interest, you can click on the title to read it. Throughout the text, conditions, symptoms, and other medical terms are hyperlinked- making it easy for you to locate related information. You also have the ability of searching within the text once viewing an ebook. R2 Digital Library supports exporting citations to RefWorks as well as  emailing and printing pages of the text. It’s a great, easy-to-use source for any Eastern health sciences student. (Access RS Digital Library from the library’s database page.)
