APA Citation of Databases

To learn how to cite sources from databases and print or web resources both parenthetically in your paper and on your Works Cited page, please refer to the Purdue OWL. Here you will find information about how to use APA (American Psychological Association) citations.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request books and articles from other libraries. Before requesting an interlibrary loan, check to see if the Monroe Library can purchase the material you need more quickly. To request articles through interlibrary loan, use the Get It! button from a citation in a library database. For information about how your materials will arrive, check out our Distance Learning Services page.

Appropriate Use of Electronic Resources

Please see our Appropriate Use of Electronic Resources (last revised Aug. 2013).

Finding Full-Text Articles

To locate a specific nursing journal or an article with full bibliographic information, use ouf Journal Finder.  Always search with the name of the journal.

When searching for a specific article, browse for it by volume and issue number.

To see all of our journals that pertain to MedicineNursing, and the Health Sciences select the Nursing and Allied Health journal list.

Databases and Resources

The databases below are ones we recommend for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program. In these databases you'll find articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers.  Some databases provide the full-text of articles and other provide citations only.  If only a citation is provided, use the Get It! button to see if the full-text is available through another library resource.  To find electronic books, search the library's e-book collection through the catalog.


If you can't find what you're looking for in our online catalog, you can borrow books owned by other Louisiana libraries. Please inquire about obtaining a LALINC card at the Monroe Library Learning Commons desk or call us at (504) 864-7111. You can request an interlibrary loan for materials that the Monroe Library does not own. If you're outside of New Orleans, click here for information on how to obtain materials from the Monroe Library.
