What is CINAHL?

CINAHL stands for the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature. It is a database (a collection of articles, books and other electronic information), through which you can locate literature on nursing, biomedicine, health sciences librarianship, alternative/complementary medicine, consumer health and 17 allied health disciplines.

How do I access CINAHL?

CINAHL is automatically searched when you use the CORE OneSearch box.  However, you can search CINAHL specifically by clicking on the CHOOSE DATABASES tab.

CHOOSE DATABASES is the second tab on the search box.
