Occupational Therapy - Dallas: Know Before You Go

Occupational therapy research guide for TWU Dallas students, faculty and staff.


  • Always check the publisher’s website directly for free full-text archives and special complementary access to new articles.
  • Ask your local state-funded college or university library for clinician and community access policies, as you may qualify for in-house access and circulation privileges.
  • Contact your local public library about the possibility of requesting articles via interlibrary loan.
  • Many hospitals have a librarian on staff – use them! 
  • Check with professional associations – AOTA, APTA, and the American Nurses Association have information on EBP research and how to access it. 
  • For non-graduating students who are moving on to fieldwork and clinical rotations refer back to the TWU OT, PT, and Nursing Library Subject Guides for reference.
  • Save and/or print handouts from any of the databases while your portal account is still active for future use.
