Additional library services

Training and consultations

Librarians provide personal consultations and instruction sessions. If you are working with a group of students, you can collaborate with a librarian to provide course-related library instruction. Contact your clinical campus librarian for more information.

Literature Searching

Contact your clinical campus librarian any time you want help. If you are  clinician searching for patient care information, preparing a conference presentation, or beginning a research study, your campus librarian will be happy to work with you. Librarians are experienced in structuring search strategies and understand how to leverage powerful interfaces. A librarian can help you take your search beyond PubMed. There are many databases available and a librarian can help you decide which of these may provide appropriate information on your topic.
