This cataloging / finding aid is intended to make measurement-related items accessible to others, primarily those in the Nursing School, for browsing, inspection, and determining feasibility in using the items in other research endeavors. Faculty have physical copies of the tools they have used. This is a way to identify who has them and where the items are located. Descriptive entries are made by Nursing School staff. These items are not digitized due to copyright restrictions. Items may be browsed ON-SITE only in the Center for Nursing Research. We cannot send them to you.
