Focus Area Description

Liaison Librarians

Did you know we have liaison librarians assigned to all Feinberg departments, centers, and programs? Find out who to contact for personal librarian support.

Literature Searches and Systematic Review Support

The library offers several search assistance models, depending on your needs.

Search consultations: If you're about to embark on a research project and would like tips on which databases you should use or how best to phrase your search terminology, contact us to arrange a search consultation or reach out to your liaison librarian

Systematic review support: Galter librarians have extensive experience collaborating with Feinberg research teams on systematic and scoping reviews. We have been named as co-authors on Feinberg systematic reviews, scoping reviews, meta-analyses, and guidelines. For more information, see our Systematic Review Guide or contact Eileen Wafford.

Library Workshops and Training By Request

The Galter Library offers monthly classes in PubMed, EndNote, and more.
See our current class schedule | See our list of research guides

Training and consult appointments with our librarians are also available by request for individuals and groups affiliated with the Feinberg School of Medicine.

Curriculum Support

Librarians can work with faculty to integrate information management skills into your course including: hands-on sessions; classroom demonstrations; training in library resources such as literature databases and educational software; EBM search skills training; and AoSC support. Contact Molly Beestrum, Education and Curriculum Coordinator, to get started.

Residents and Clinical Departments

Each department or program is assigned a liaison librarian who can help with: EBM search skills training; education and demonstrations at departmental meetings; systematic review and publication support; and resource recommendations. We also have clinical informationists, librarians with specialized training who can round with clinical teams. Contact your department's liaison librarian for more information.
