The Multicultural Diversity Collection includes books on ethnic and cultural studies, and women’s studies and each of America’s major ethnic groups are included in the collection. The Nursing Collection includes books on advanced practice nursing, nurse practitioners, specialty areas such as pediatric nursing, and some nursing reference handbooks.
These titles can be located by using Discovery Search orby searching EBSCOHOST.
