Community Health & Epidemiology: For Faculty

Resources for Public Health faculty

Why Include Library Instruction in Your Class?

The Health Sciences Library offers a range of instruction sessions for students. Sample topics include:Labs

  • How to do a literature search
  • Forming a research question
  • Searching for journal articles in databases (e.g., CINAHL, Medline, Pubmed)
  • Searching for grey literature
  • Using citation management programs (Endnote, etc)
  • Copyright
  • and more!

These sessions can assist students by:

  • Helping them develop well-thought out research questions
  • Ensuring that high-quality sources are being used for research papers and presentations
  • Making sure that they are properly citing the material they use
  • Demonstrating that there is someone to go to for questions
  • and more!

To set up a library instruction session for your class contact your Liaison Librarian.
