Check out these guides that cover the basics of using library resources and doing research to get you started.

Community Health Research

This guide is designed to get you started researching a community health topic. It includes tips for exploring a topic, finding journal articles in the library's online health databases, and suggestions for finding good information on a health topic using the Internet.

If you have questions about your research or using library resources, please contact your HEA 123 librarian!

Getting a Library Card

Your student UMF ID + a library barcode = your library card.  Bring your student ID to the main desk (on the right as you enter the library) and ask for a barcode.  It just takes a few seconds!

You will need a barcode to:

  • borrow books,
  • request books from other libraries,
  • check out materials on reserve for a course (even if reserve items do not leave the library, they still have to be checked out to the person using them), and
  • use the library databases from off-campus.
