Health Sciences: Books & eBooks

Recommended resources for Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Health Care Sciences Health Sciences Program students and faculty

Online Textbooks, Dictionaries & Encyclopedias

Background resources, usually textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc., can provide

  • Basic overviews on topics
  • Definitions of key concepts
  • References (citations) leading to further research

 

The eBooks within these collections are also listed individually in NSU's catalog.  So, why search these eBook collections as well? 

  • These eBook collections allow you to search within the full-text of multiple eBooks at one time, so if chapters within a book cover your topic, it will appear in the results. 
  • If you are looking for a specific book/eBook, please search the NSU catalog by the title to see if we own it.
