When writing papers or doing research it? essential to find
reliable sources to obtain the information from, this will decrease
the chances that the information is inaccurate. GCU library provides
students with plenty of online scholarly databases to aid in this
research process. Two databases I have used in the past are CINAHL
Complete and PubMed. These two databases have health journals, books,
continuing education modules, EBP care sheets, and so much more!
What? great about using these databases is the information is
peer-reviewed and is backed up by actual research to ensure it? accurate.

Using GCU? library databases are a great tool to find
reliable information, rather than just using Google. When using Google
you truly never know what you are going to get or if the information
on the website you found is accurate. It may look like a reliable
website, but really anyone can make a website and put information into
it. When we write papers or discussion boards, fellow classmates may
use our information as a learning tool, so it? important we are
finding accurate information to share. Another advantage of using
GCU? databases are the searches are organized and you can type
in keywords, peer-review options, publication years, etc. This helps
pin point articles you are looking for so you don? waste time
looking through thousands of articles that does not pertain to what
you are looking for.

The two GCU library databases that I feel will help me to find the
best research articles to support my EBP proposal are Cochrane Library
and Medline Plus. The general internet search is unreliable
because anyone can post anything they want and may not produce
reliable results. It is imperative to have reliable and
trustworthy research articles to support the EBP project. Most
library databases have scholarly/peer-reviewed articles and contain
only scholarly literature. GCU library databases guarantee
authority and trustworthiness. The library databases have
advanced search features that can be limiting by publication type,
data, language, document format, scholarly/peer-reviewed status, as
well as, focus by subject which means more relevant information and
less time wasted dealing with junk information. Using general
internet search or Google Scholar can produce limited results and
there is lack of regulation and duplicated information. It is
imperative to evaluate the research articles for validity and reliability.

A Library database is an electronic (online) catalog or index that
contain information about published items (California State University
Los Angeles, 2018). When writing EBP proposal, it is important
that the writer use the library database as it helps the writer to
locate relevant information and also assess the quality of the
information located. GCU Library contains many scholarly databases
that one can use to find the best research article to support his/her
EBP proposal. Of the many database article in GCU library, I have used
the CINAHL complete (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health),
Cochrane library and PubMed and found them to be very helpful because
it leads the researcher/writer to the source of the information (e.g.
journal, books, encyclopedias etc.); it provides citation that
includes the article author, title and source of information; it also
provides the journal name, volume, issue, page, an abstract of the
article and full text (the entire article).

I found these two-library databases to be better than google scholar
or general internet search when writing EBP proposal because the
information they contain are more reliable and credible than that
found on some website. Library database information are better
basically because they are sourced from experts and professionals
unlike the general internet search that anyone could upload. The
quality of the internet resources is unmonitored and the authenticity
of the information may not be known.

definitely provides a wealth of information, this sometimes
isn? worth spending the time sifting through the data.
It doesn? offer all the information that students are looking
for and information found there may not be very reliable.

two main databases in GCU library that I believe will help me find
the best research articles to support my EBP proposal are as follows:

  • ProQuest
    Nursing & Allied Health Source ·if offers a wide range
    of materials in nursing, allied health, alternative and
    complementary medicine and the likes. It has over 860 titles
    in full text and over 12,000 full text dissertations indicative of
    arduous nursing scholarships. Additionally, gives access to
    online reference books, training tools and evidence-based nursing
    material from The Joana Briggs Institute. It? a good
    source for training videos and cultural reports that helps with
    crating a better understanding about patient care.
    Complete ·is one of the strongest database for
    nursing. It offers research tools and access to nursing and
    allied journals. It is comprised of more than 1300 journal
    titles and covers over fifty specialties in nursing. In
    addition, it offers continuing education modules, research
    instruments and evidence-based care sheets

library has many databases that allows access to thousands of full
text journals and articles. And these scholarly resources are
best to use in research as it provides solid and reliable information.

The two databases I have found useful for reasearch and
info are the Joanna Briggs Institute EBP and the Nursing and
allied Health database. These articles are found on an educational
institute library whcih provides eivdence based articles and as well
as peer review items. While anyone may edit a google site the ones on
the school library database have reasearch and evidence to back there articles.

The Joanna Brigss Institute is anevidence-based
practice database that includes more than 3,000 records across seven
publication types. These types include Evidence Summaries,
Evidence-Based Recommended Practices, Best Practice Information
Sheets, Systematic Reviews, Consumer Information Sheets, Systematic
Review Protocols, & Technical Reports.

The Nursing and Allied HEalth Database provides
students, instructors, researchers, and nurses around the world with
its diverse mix of scholarly literature, clinical training videos,
reference materials, and evidence-based resources, including
dissertations and systematic reviews.
