Search Tips & Tutorials: R2 Digital Library

R2 Digital Library

R2 Search Tips & Tutorials

R2 Digital Library is a collection of nursing and medical eBooks available through Rittenhouse.  The Libraries purchase selected titles from this vendor.   To make suggestions for additional titles to purchase, contact Your Librarians.

Notes on using R2 :

1) You have to be at an Ascension Wisconsin work computer to use it.  We don’t have remote access for R2 eBooks.

 2) It won’t let you print a whole book, though a chapter or two is ok.  If R2 sees you are trying to print an eBook in its entirity, it will shut down access, and give  you (and all of us) a “time out.”   It’s meant to be used as a reference book, for quick look-ups.  Not really the kind of thing people sit down and read cover-to-cover. 

For information on how to use R2 Library efficiently, see the links below :
