To begin using library resources visit the library’s home page: my.limestone.edu/library. From here you will be able to access a variety of sources. As an off campus student, you will be prompted to login using your Limestone email username and password before accessing the library's online resources.

You can access online articles through the databases. If you begin with the Research Databases Guide (http://libguides.limestone.edu/aecontent.php?pid=360472) you will find a search utility where you can search for relevant articles on your  topic.

You are also able to select specific databases from the Research Databases Guide. I would suggest trying the following: Career Guide to Industries – Healthcare, Medline, Cinahl Plus, and Ferguson’s Career Guidance Center, in addition to general databases such as Academic OneFile, Lexis Nexis, and MasterFile Premier.

Once you are in a library research database, be sure that you check the box for Full Text if you need to retrieve the complete article right away. Also, if you need only peer reviewed articles, check that box as well.

Possible search terms for your topic may include:  health services administration, health services administrators AND employment, health facility administrators AND education, health care administration AND salaries OR benefits, etc.

To locate e-books on the topic use the Find Electronic Books link: http://libguides.limestone.edu/electronicbooks.  

To search for print books use the link for Search our KATE Online Catalog. If you locate print books that you need, the library will mail these books to you with return postage included.

I am not sure which course you are taking, but there may be a Library Guide designed for your course. To get to the guides (called LibGuides), go to the library website my.limestone.edu/library and click on the LibGuides link. You can also go directly to the LibGuides by clicking on  http://libguides.limestone.edu/

From the Browse by Subject listing, click on the discipline for the course. Then if you cannot find your specific course guide, just go to the general subject guide, for example,  Business.
