The collection in nurse anesthesia supports an M.S. in Nurse Anesthesia. Two courses of study are provided. The Basic Professional Degree includes didactic, clinical, and research components. The Postgraduate CRNA Program provides the postgraduate certified registered nurse anesthetist with a greater depth of study in the basic sciences and anesthesiology as well as skills in educational instruction, research, and consultation. The collection also serves students and faculty of the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Basic Health Sciences.
2. General Collection Guidelines.
In the field of health care practice and organization, primary emphasis is on the United States. Materials on the health care services of other countries are acquired selectively. Publications of medical research and current practices are acquired regardless of national origin, with primary emphasis on those studies relevent to medical and health problems in the United States.
Treatment of Subject.
Lower division textbooks are not generally acquired. Upper division texts are acquired selectively. Primary emphasis is on graduate and professional texts reporting current research.
Types of Materials and Formats.
Monographs and periodicals are the principal formats. Indexes, abstracts, encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, bibliographies, data tables and charts, atlases, as well as conference proceedings and symposia, are also collected. Acquisition of periodicals takes precedence over that of monographs. Dissertations are added only by special request. Audio-visual materials, chiefly videotapes and slide-audio tapes, are collected and housed in the Learning Resource Centers.
3. Area Resources.
The collection functions as a primary source for health science professionals in the region. There are no comparable collections in the area.
