Wake Forest PA Program @ Boone: Wake Forest PA Program @ Boone

Library services online and in person


I'm interested in what you're working on and any problems you have in your work.  Contact me at  Little problems (link doesn't work, something did not make sense) and big problems (doing a comprehensive search of the literature or if you're not finding anything).  Email, at Levine Hall, on campus, Zoom.

I have a masters in public health epidemiology from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (aka Rutgers), a library degree from UNC Greensboro, and lots of experience helping grad students.

The Belk LIbrary is usually open 24/5, but during the summer that's not true.  We close at 12 midnight most nights in June and July.  Here is a link to schedule.  Watch out for a few weekends when we're closed during intersessions.

On the other hand, the Belk Library can be very quiet during the summer.  A very good place to get away and work!

Basic Library Links -- Appalachian State University

Physician Assistant Resources @ Appalachian

The link to Wake Forest's resources for Physician Assistants is above.

This list is based on Wake Forest's list.  But Appalachian does not have exactly the same access as Wake Forest.  If you do not find a databases or full text from one library, try the other also.  (For journal articles, I always check the Web also.)

Other ASU Belk Library Information

Access to 2 libraries but also other libraries

Remember that if you need full text to an article or you need a book, you have access to both the WFU Carpenter Library and ASU Belk Library.  Check both and check the web for free versions too. 

If the article you need is not available through either library or the web, you also have interlibrary service through both libraries.  My colleague, Dianna Johnson, does a great job getting articles and they usually come in about 24 hours.  Also books, dissertations, and other resources, though those take longer.  We also buy things as needed, including articles.  So consider submitting an ILLiad requests, through either AppState or Wake. 

Welcome to AppState and Belk Library -- Night and weekend library managers

Be sure to say hi to our library managers and student-workers, especially if you'll be a regular in our building.  (One more way to make yourself at home.) 

Managing the library: Adam Baldwin (late night), Jack Stanovsky (Saturdays and Tu-Sa evenings), and Russell Paige (Sundays and M-Th 'til midnight).   And Callie Powell also on Saturdays!

Also, I don't always check my email, but it's worth a try evenings and weekends.

Quick links to databases, and getting help

Need help? I'm available: email wiswellj@, Zoom, chat, appointment.  Make appointment (in person Levine or LIbrary, or Zoom).  Email if these times don't work.
