Library services related to research and instruction are available to all faculty, staff, and students who work and study within NEOMED's three colleges. Employing an embedded approach, the library collaborates with researchers from project conception to completion and beyond. In the area of instruction, we offer a variety of workshops and drop-in sessions to help educate the entire NEOMED community and support the curriculum offered by NEOMED faculty.
If you are faculty or staff, then we encourage you to request a consultation with your reference librarian for comprehensive searches in bibliographic databases and other resources (if you are a student, see our page on student research services). This includes systematic review searching, help selecting appropriate databases for your research, tracking scholarly output (research metrics & impact), and advice on where to publish.
To set up a time for a consultation, fill out this form. A librarian will contact you to discuss your research topic and needs.
