As part of our mission to support the EVMS campus and our surrounding community, we aim to provide information services to faculty, staff, residents, students and members of the community.
Faculty members should consider scheduling an instruction session for their students if there is a research component to the class. Course-related library instruction is one of the most effective ways to teach students the art of research. Instructional sessions are even more effective if done in conjunction with a specific assignment so that students can practice the skills and strategies taught.
Sessions can include a general orientation to library resources and services, cover basic or advanced literature searches or focus on a particular database or topic. Recent examples of presentations include "Finding Answers to Clinical Questions," "Advanced Medline Searching" and "Evidence-Based Medicine."
