Natural Standard Tutorial Video

Natural Standard

Attention Alternative Medicine Students!

Natural Standard, one of our premier EU library databases for Complementary and Alternative Medicine research, made a 9-minute video that covers the basic elements of what you can find on the database. The nice thing about this video is that it offers a concise overview of the website, yet it goes into a bit more detail than we do on our 5-minute library video tutorial about our Alt Med resources (you can watch that video and our other library videos at

Here is the direct link to the Natural Standard video and video website URL:

To access Natural Standard and our other EU library databases, you must first log in to our EU library website. Go to:, then enter your Username (student ID number) and password (last four digits of your SSN; if the first digit is a zero, replace it with a one). For faculty members who have set up library accounts, your username is your first name followed by the last four of your SSN, and your password is your last name. Once you are logged in, our library databases are located in the left-hand column in the big blue box.

One of the featured articles right now is “Homeopathy for Autism and Gastrointestinal Disease” by Angelica Lemke which traces some of the commonalities among autism spectrum patients with gastrointestinal difficulties, different treatments that were explored, and what improvements were seen. This type of article is a great example of what you’ll typically find in an issue of NDNR.

Virtual Display: Chinese Medicine

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

If you’ve been to the library lately, you might have noticed one of our displays. All of the campuses work hard to offer rotating displays on a wide variety of topics. Sometimes they highlight new materials in our collection, sometimes they showcase a particular program or topic, and often they focus on titles related to a specific class that’s being offered this term.

But, what if you can’t make it to campus or you’re an online student? Why not check out some of the eBook titles listed below? These are just a sample of those that relate to the Traditional Chinese Medicine class. In order to access e-books, log-in to the Library Splash page and click on “eBrary” under E-Books in the blue databases box. You can search by the subject or by the title.
