Doing Research as EMSM students

This guide will help you find the best starting points for doing research in your EMSM program here at Springfield College.

You can locate journal articles as well as news and magazine articles, find books and ebooks, learn about evidence-based practice , and even get some useful internet sources for your research.

The tabs across the side of the page will help you navigate between topics. Please contact me, your librarian, with any questions you might have (see contact info in the box to the left).

Have questions? Need assistance?

As the librarian serving as subject-specialist for EMSM, I help students at all levels (and faculty) with:

  • Helping to plan your research strategy: what information you need, where to find it, and how to access and use it efficiently
  • Knowing when to use the internet and when the library resources are best
  • Tips and tricks for searching in the library's catalog and our many databases
  • Distinguishing between types of articles
  • Tracking down books and the full text of articles from other libraries
  • Purchasing materials for the library with input from students and faculty
  • Group instruction and one-on-one consultations
