E-books at the Health Professions Library

November 18th, 2009 by John Carey

The Hunter Health Professions Library is pleased to announce that we have expanded our collection of electronic textbooks to 57 titles (up from 19 last semester).  Many of the new titles were purchased with funding from the CUNY e-book/textbook initiative.  These e-books are accessible to all Hunter students and faculty by clicking on the “E-books” link on the Health Professions Library’s home page.

Our list of e-books was already strong in the field of  nursing and is now even more so, with new additions such as the 2010 Lippincott’s Nursing Drug Guide.  We also offer e-books on the fundamentals of nursing, issues surrounding best practices and evidence-based nursing, and psychiatric or mental health nursing.  However, in our newly expanded collection, users can also browse for e-books in a wide range of health sciences, including:

  • epidemiology and public health
  • nutrition and dietetics
  • internal medicine
  • biostatistics
  • obstetrics and women’s health

and much more.  So be sure to check out these great new resources from HPL.

    Good to know about the e-books. I am sure they will be popular with the students. Can one locate them using CUNY+?

  3. John Carey Says:

    Yes Amrita, if you search for one of these titles in CUNY+ it should show up as an electronic resource with a URL to click on.
