WIU awarded LSTA Grant for Nursing Resources

In May, WIU was awarded a Back to Books Grant LSTA Grant through the Illinois State Library. The grant was titled Nursing Resources for a Rural Academic Library, we were awarded the maximum award of $5000. Eighty-five titles were purchased. Please take a look at the title that were purchased with Illinois state funds. These resources can be found searching through CARLI’s I-Share catalog as well as through WorldCat. Please request any items that will be of use through ILL.

I created a LibGuide for this collection that offers a subject list, individual pages by subject that include the book cover and library location information with a link to our catalog and a printable list of the items purchased. Please share this with anyone that may be interested.

If you have any questions about the collection please email me directly at
