Research Resources at GW

Real change in health care cannot be made without a basis in rigorous, evidenced-based research. The GW School of Nursing (SON) is committed to supporting its faculty and students in their efforts to expand this body of knowledge, and to equip them with the skills necessary to continue conducting research for the remainder of their careers. Through its many resources, SON seeks to suit every research need.

The GW Medical Center is home to the Himmelfarb Library, one of the most comprehensive and heavily used medical libraries in the country. The newly renovated facility, located in Ross Hall, houses nearly 25,000 medical monographs, more than 2,000 active journal holdings, and a growing number of titles online. Its electronic resources include more than 1,600 journal titles, major databases such as MEDLINE and PsycInfo, and more than 100 online textbooks and resources for hand-held computing devices.

The George Washington University supports several administrative offices that function as technical support systems for researchers. With experts in technology, research, and planning on staff, these offices ensure that the work of the GW community complies with University and nation- wide regulations. At a research university like GW, students and faculty in all fields are encouraged to engage in unique interdisciplinary research opportunities, contributing to some of the most pressing and cross-cutting issues of the day.
