Cowles Library adds dozens of new resources in 2017!

Cowles Library has added dozens of new resources in almost every subject category of interest to Drake students and researchers. We have created a full list, plus specialized lists based on major/discipline (and interdisciplinary, too!) Check them out at: http://researchguides.drake.edu/2017


Health and Wellness Resource Center (Gale)

The Health and Wellness Resource Center by Gale is a consumer health resource with access to many full-text health science databases which contain more than 1,000 medical journals, periodicals, and articles from more than 2,200 general-interest publications, medical newspapers, newsletters and news feeds.  Additionally, this resource has streaming videos with transcripts from Healthology, Illumistream, NBC and ORLive.

Most importantly though, it has access to a variety of electronic full-text dictionaries and encyclopedias including:

  1. The Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine
  2. The Gale Encyclopedia of Surgery and Medical Tests
  3. The Gale Encyclopedia of Genetic Disorders
  4. The Gale Encyclopedia of Cancer
  5. The Medical and Health Information Directory
  6. Medical Health Information Directory
  7. Merriam-Webster’s Medical Desk Dictionary
  8. various Thomson Healthcare and Micromedex drug guides.

 

However, this database is partially searchable in SuperSearch.
