Library faculty and staff members want to help you accomplish your goals effectively and efficiently.

Do you need help accessing or using an information resource, searching the literature, citing resources, writing a report, disseminating your poster or manuscript, or prototyping a new instrument? Do you want training or want your students to receive training related to one of these goals? If so, we have a service that will be useful to you.
Need help obtaining a specific article?
Contact AskUs by e-mail, phone, or chat if you need assistance accessing a library licensed article or resource.
If the library does not own an article or book, request the article through our interlibrary loan service.
Need health information for you or a family member

For health information to help deal with an illness or make healthcare decisions, submit a request to the UNMC Health Information Service. This service provides customized packets of information in response to requests from residents of the state of Nebraska and those persons receiving healthcare in Nebraska.

Need help searching medical literature?

To learn more about searching the literature on your own, schedule a consultation with one of our Education & Research Services Librarians.

To obtain a list of journal articles that address a patient-care-related, quality improvement, or research-related question, request a search through our literature search service.
