Abstract

This article describes collaboration between the nursing librarian and faculty members teaching scholarly inquiry in nursing (nursing research), a course for baccalaureate nursing students. Workshops presented by the librarian enhanced nursing students' information literacy skills, particularly related to accessing evidence-based sources. Student perceptions of the library integration with scholarly inquiry in nursing are presented and suggest that librarians empower them with knowledge and skills that enhance their ability to integrate evidence into their nursing practice.
