The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the library resources and services available to BCIT scholars and scholars-to-be interested in this subject area.

The guide aims to inspire you to find a wide variety of perspectives by: 

  • building a good search strategy
  • narrowing or expanding that search
  • selecting the best databases for your research topic
  • locating specific documents
  • evaluating information critically

"Whatever your role as a nurse may be, understanding how to find, interpret, apply and carry out research are essential skills." Sakraida, T. (2018). Florida Atlantic University.

My name is Ana Maria Ferrinho and I am the librarian responsible for this guide. If you have any research questions feel free to contact me at aferrinh@bcit.ca
