Welcome back! The Education & Reference Department has a great lineup of classes and training opportunities for fall.

Regular Classes

Each semester, there are a number of in-library classes offering expert training, including:

  • Getting Started & Finding Full Text
  • EndNote Installation & Open Lab; EndNote User Training
  • Copyright & Fair Use
  • Searching PubMed
  • Answering Clinical Questions in Real Time
  • Introduction to Public Health Resources
  • Searching for the Evidence

We also offer a monthly series of hands-on workshops called “Data and Dulces,” which is focused on biomedical data science tools and topics like R and RStudio, version control, SQL databases, and data cleaning with OpenRefine.

Special Classes

If you’d like instruction beyond what is offered in these regular classes, or if you are faculty looking for curriculum-based library instruction, please let us know more about your needs by filling out the Special Class form. We can mix and match from the topics listed above with a discipline-specific focus, if desired. Time-permitting, we can also cover topics such as data management, keeping track of research output, or expert searching in other resources. We take our show on the road, too; we are happy to come to your classroom.

Coming Soon: Introduction to Nursing Resources

Coming this later this semester, Education & Reference staff will be adding an introduction for students and faculty in nursing programs to its lineup of regular classes. Topics will include searching databases specific to the discipline (i.e., CINAHL) as well as successful online research strategies. Watch the Academic Announcements email list for for future dates for this and other opportunities!
