Subject Guide: Speech-Language Pathology Assisting

Books and audiovisual materials 

Use the Library Search to find books. Limit your search to books by selecting the Books resource type under Refine My Results. Chemeketa books will show as Available, with a green disc indicator, followed by the location and call number.

You may have to do several searches to find books that might be pertinent to your subject.

Books not owned by Chemeketa may be requested through Summit or via interlibrary loan.


Chemeketa students registered for credit may request Summit books from other Orbis Cascade Alliance libraries. The Orbis Cascade Alliance is made up of 37 member libraries in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Authorized users have access to all of the material in the Chemeketa Community College library, plus about 28 million items in Summit.

Finding articles

Here are indexes that cover most of the journals in Chemeketa's library. No one index covers every journal, so if you do not find what you need in one, try another.

You can do simple keyword searches in CINAHL, but if you'd like to learn how to use CINAHL headings, there are tutorials on CINAHL at How To Use CINAHL.

Video tutorials on MEDLINE are available: How to Use Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and How to Use MEDLINE to find evidence-based research
