As a program, Interdisciplinary Health relies on discipline-specific resources in such fields as Education,  Indigenous Studies Human Kinetics, Nursing, Psychology and Sociology.

Program in Interdisciplinary Health

Laurentian's graduate program in Interdisciplinary Health integrates knowledge from various health fields including Psychology, Sociology, Human Kinetics and related disciplines to provide a broad understanding of health and human development over the life course.  Originally a Master's in Human Development, the program was renamed in September 2014.  For more information on the program,  please visit its website.


The purpose of this guide is to recommend print and electronic resources for conducting research into Interdisciplinary Health in the Library. 

Connect from Off Campus

Most of the Library's online resources are available to you from anywhere off campus.  See: UL Proxy Accounts.

Library Instruction

To learn more about the library and its resources and how you can exploit them to your advantage, register in the Research Skills Tutorial on D2L. There are several sections in the tutorial with a short quiz at the end of each; at the end you will receive a Certificate of Completion. Many professors require you to take this tutorial--and once you finish it, you can save your certificate to reprint as often as necessary.

In the fall,  the library hosts live Orientation tours as well as Zotero classes which you can sign up for at the library's entrance, and even after the formal schedule is finished, we are very happy to put on special classes at the request of at least 5 students. If you would like to arrange a special class, or you think your course would benefit from some in-class library instruction, please ask your professor to contact the librarian responsible for your faculty to set up some sessions.
