Subject Guide: Speech-Language Pathology Assisting

Books and audiovisual materials 

Use the library catalog to search for books and other resources. The catalog page has links to information on how to use the library catalog, how to request material from another library, and more.

Some resources in Chemeketa's library:

You can request items through the catalog to be delivered to the Yamhill Valley Campus, to one of the CCRLS Public libraries (in Marion, Polk or Yamill Counties), or to one of the numerous pickup locations of Summit (in Oregon and Washington).

If you do not find what you need in our library or the libraries of the CCRLS district, you can pass your search through to Summit, where you can choose from approximately 28 million items in 36 college and university libraries in Oregon and Washington. See About Summit for details and instructions.

Electronic Reference

This is a sampling of books from our reference collection that may be helpful.

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
