June 7, 2004, Medford, New Jersey—Information Today, Inc. has announced the publication of the new book Pathways to Nursing: A Guide to Library and Online Research in Nursing and Allied Health, by Dennis C. Tucker and Paula Craig.

Pathways to Nursing provides a foundation in library and electronic research in the nursing and allied health sciences fields. It explains essential sources and techniques that can be used by nursing students, healthcare researchers, and nurse practitioners who need to gather information independently. The book covers both physical libraries and online resources, showing how each can be used to its best advantage, and describes the six major components necessary to the development of information retrieval and utilization skills in this critical field.

Chapters and features include:

· The Library as a Physical Space
· Electronic Resources and the Internet
· The Library Catalog
· The Research Paper
· The Reference Collection
· A Review of the Process
· Periodicals and Indexes

The book includes nearly thirty useful illustrations, figures, and screenshots and a thorough back-of-book index.
