Health Literature

Health information can be found in the literature of several fields of study. Keep these tips in mind to simplify searching: 

  • Research in Health is published in journal articles and trade magazines
  • Examples of good practice in health and physical education are published in journal articles and ERIC documents
  • Theory and historical information can be found in books
  • Find Articles through the sources listed on the Articles tab

If you are having trouble finding good information for your Health assignments, use the Ask Us Anything service to get help from a librarian.

Requesting Books and Other Items

When we don't have the item you need, it is usually easiest to place an ILL request directly from a search result in a database. WorldCat searches across library collections worldwide and links to ILLiad for items not owned by Lehman Library.

  1. Search WorldCat Quick Start to locate an item you want
    • Remember to check the type of item. For example, if you want books:
      • The left column offers a limit by format function, just click "Books"
    • Click the title of the item you want
      • If the pages says "This item isn't held in your library"
    • Click "Request this item via Interlibrary Loan."
      *Remember* if there are only a few copies of a book listed in WorldCat, we will probably be unable to borrow that book for you.
  2. For books, videos and other items not available using the services listed above, please request directly through ILLiad.
  3. WorldCat should match up with the Library Catalog. If you are interested, doublecheck the Library Catalog to confirm whether or not Ship Library owns a physical copy of an item.

ILLiad sequentially asks up to 15 libraries that own the item to loan it to us for you.  Each library has four days to respond before the request is transferred to the next library.
