Featured Database: Alt HealthWatch

You can use databases to easily find organized collections of articles, journals, news, streaming videos, primary sources, data, and more!

Here’s one of our unique databases:

Alt HealthWatch

What’s in it?

Articles from a mix of magazines, trade publications and peer-reviewed academic journals focusing on the evolving practice of holistic medicine and therapies. Just a few subjects included are acupuncture, nutrition, homeopathy, hypnosis, childbirth, and aromatherapy.

Why should you use it?

To easily find alternative and integrated approaches to health care and wellness. This database has a robust and easy to use search feature that allows users to limit their search by type, date, and subject. Results can be sorted by relevance, date, source, or author.

Who should use it?

Students, faculty, and staff exploring and studying complementary and alternative medicine.

Why use a database?

When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
