Librarians are available for research consultations, literature searches, and individualized training in the use of library resources and databases.
The Galter Library offers regularly-scheduled classes on popular topics, such as EndNote, Creating Posters Using PowerPoint, and PubMed. To see what's currently on offer, go to the class schedule.
If you cannot attend a regularly-scheduled class, then you can always set up an individual training appointment with one of our Education Librarians. If you need help with software, such as EndNote, or would like to know more about how to use our databases, such as MEDLINE, then contact us to arrange a personal, customizable training session. We can also set up sessions for your department or group, either at your Chicago campus office or in the library's computer classroom.
Contact us at (312) 503-8109 or email the Galter Education Team.
If you're about to embark on a literature search and would like some tips on which databases you should use or how best to phrase your search terminology, then contact us to arrange a search consultation with one of our Reference Librarians.
