Getting Started

Welcome to our guide of materials related to the nursing program at Pitt-Greensburg and Millstein Library.

We are here to help if you have any questions! Please use the links below to learn more about services available to you.

To begin a search, enter a term in the “search anything” box. You can select Books, Articles, and More to search for items across the entire library system including journal articles, images, ebooks, and more. Use the Library Catalog option to search for items available both electronically and physically in our libraries such as books, videos, music scores and more. The Course Reserves option will help you find materials put on reserve by instructors for a specific course.

The Results Screen shows you a list of items with basic information--click on a title to get a more detailed overview of the item you’ve selected. This detailed view gives you much more information about the item. You can see where the item is located and ways to email or print the record as well as how to cite. You may also see an abstract for the item or a table of contents if available.

You can Refine Your Results by using the menu on the left. If you only want a physical copy of the book pick “library holdings” or if you want an electronic copy of a book, choose e-book.

If Full-Text Content is available, you can get the full-text by clicking on the item title or the "available online" link.

You can add Boolean Operators (AND, OR, NOT) into the Simple Search (the default search box) by adding them in all caps.

These are just a few of the journals available in the databases of the University Library System (ULS) and the Health Sciences Library System (HSLS).

Many books used in the nursing program are available as eBooks via HSLS' Nursing Guide. However, a few titles of interest are also available in print at Millstein Library, including:

Academic Integrity Canvas Course & Badge

As a University of Pittsburgh student, you are expected to adhere to certain standards of academic integrity. To learn about those standards, the University Library System has developed a few short Academic Integrity modules in Canvas. You will learn about Pitt guidelines on plagiarism, honesty, ownership of intellectual property, and scholastically appropriate behavior established by the academic community and the University of Pittsburgh. The modules will explain these concepts in more detail. After you have reviewed the modules, you will take a quiz on all the aspects that you learned. When you complete the quiz successfully, with a score of 80% or more, you can sign up to receive a Credly badge.
