Nursing: Home


This Guide consists of a list of selected resources on nursing available in Auraria Library and on the Internet. 


Looking through the Library's collection of nursing materials may help you decide on a topic. Information about nursing can be found in several collections, i.e., reference, periodicals, government documents, media and book collections. Books shelved on the second floor can be checked out. Within each collection area, library materials are arranged and located by call numbers. The call number refers to a subject. Most of the library materials in the areas of nursing, and other related areas are assigned the call numbers as listed:

  • R Medicine (General)
  • R 131-684 History of medicine
  • R 735-847 Medical education
  • RA Public aspects of education
  • RA 5-418 Medicine and state
  • RA 421-790 Public health. Hygiene. Preventive medicine
  • RB Pathology
  • RC Internal medicine. Practice of medicine
  • RD Surgery
  • RM Therapeutics. Pharmacology
  • RT Nursing
  • RZ Other Systems of medicine

Please also note that most of the library materials are located and arranged first by type of materials, and then by call numbers. For instance, many of the nursing journals will be shelved in the periodicals collection area in the RT section while books to check out are found in the RT section on the second floor and reference books are in the RT section of the Reference collection.  We also have many electronic books online for our students faculty and staff to use on and off campus.
