UNMC's librarians offer instruction in a variety of formats and on a wide variety of topics. We offer live or asynchronous, face-to-face or online instruction. Whether you want a short online tutorial, one-on-one librarian-student meeting, a lecture/workshop with your students, or help integrating inquiry-related topics into your curriculum, we can help. Topics often addressed by librarians include:

  • Orientation of library resources and services
  • Outlining a research question
  • Searching for journal articles using one or more literature databases (PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO, EMBASE, Scopus, SciFinder, IEEE, etc.)
  • Accessing full-text articles
  • Saving search results and creating search alerts
  • Using RefWorks, EndNote, or Zotero
  • Finding a journal for your article
  • Advanced Google and Google Scholar searching
  • Evaluating websites or publication types
  • Overview of evidence-based practice
  • Overview of the systematic review process
  • Searching for experts
  • Increasing your research impact
  • Copyright and plagiarism
  • Specific topics related to UNMC's history or to the library's special collections and archives
