Library Updates (COVID-19)

This page contains important information and updates on how NEOMED Library is altering its operations to meet the challenges created by COVID-19, as well as a listing of services that can support virtual learning and research

Core Services Available to Students

Remote Help Desk Support

The help desk and library phones have been forwarded to staff working remotely. Staff will be available to assist you from 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please, if possible, enter a Work Ticket for help desk service – sign-in in the top right corner on the linked page. This will help us to expeditiously route your request to the best service manager to resolve the issue.

Research Services For Students

The Library offers a variety of services to all NEOMED students, regardless of your year or location. We offer free appointments (visit our consult form to schedule one now) that can be scheduled with a librarian to help with:

  • Literature Searching - We can help you locate the latest evidence for assignments, research projects, and publications. Meet with us to learn how to search using controlled vocabularies and keywords in a variety of biomedical databases.

  • Resource Selection - Navigating which resources to use for different projects and assignments can sometimes be a challenge. Our staff provides expert advice on which database to search within based on the topic/discipline of the project.

  • Research Datasets and Gray Literature - Contact us if you need to find statistics, data sets, or gray literature.

  • Find Funding and Potential Research Collaborators - We can advise on how to find government and private funding sources, how to communicate your research accomplishments in an NIH Biosketch profile, and we can point to areas of research occurring on and off-campus to assist with potential student research projects.

  • Citation Management - Citation management tools are programs that collect records or citations from research databases (indexes, catalogs, etc.) that you can then organize for your research projects. We provide training in how to set up and usZotero and EndNote software.

  • Comprehensive Literature Review Support - Contact us if you are working on a long-term thesis or research project requiring a comprehensive literature review. We can help devise a search strategy which will more accurately and efficiently find what has been published on a topic.

Please contact srobins@neomed.edu for assistance.
