Community Health

Community Health Search Tips:

The subject of Community Health is interrelated to many other subjects, i.e: psychology, medicine, economics, sociology, politics, and public administration. So, you must plan search strategies which bring together all related terms using basic Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT), which links community health to other related subjects.

 For example:

 [COMMUNITY HEALTH AND PSYCHOLOGY]       =       Both words must be present to narrow the search results.

 [DIABETES AND WOMEN NOT MEN]                   =       Narrows search by excluding words and phrases.

 [COMMUNITY AND RURAL OR URBAN]             =       Broadens search by asking for either word or phrase.

 [MEASLES NEAR CHIILDREN]                           =       Specifies how close terms should appear to each other in text.

 [TRAVEL* AND HEALTH]                                  =        The asterisk (*) includes all or part of the word, i.e. travel, traveler, traveling, etc.



How to Get a Book That Hofstra Does Not Own

There are two methods by which you can acquire an item that Hofstra does not own.

  1. You can interlibrary loan the item (item will be delivered to Hofstra for pickup or delivered electronically).
  2. If you need an article which another library has in print, most libraries allow the public to enter and copy materials. 
    • If you need a book which Hofstra does not have available but another library in Nassau/Suffolk has available for circulation, you can acquire a LILRC Research Loan Program (RLP) card from the Axinn Library Circulation Desk.  This card, good for 30 days, will enable you to borrow the book from the other library.  You should check the other library’s catalog to see if the book is available.
