Library of the Health Sciences - Chicago
The Library of the Health Sciences is committed to supporting the research and educational needs of the UIC community and health science researchers.
UIC faculty may request a librarian to teach library resources, research strategies, and components of evidence-based practice as a segment of a course or for several classes.
Library instruction is most relevant to students when it is attached to an assignment and/or course learning goals and objectives. Timing is also an important factor in student learning. Ideally, the instruction session will coincide with the start of an assignment or project.
To request a library instruction session, contact your Library Liaison or the Education Coordinator.
In order to accommodate your request, please provide a two week notice. When requesting a class provide the following information:
- Course Title & Number
- Date & Time
- Content you would like covered in the library instruction session
- Description of assignment/project
If you are having difficulty locating materials on a particular topic or simply need help beginning the research process, Information Services librarians offer individual consultation sessions by appointment. Fill out the Request Form for an appointment.
The Information Services Department offers a number of
workshops each semester. These workshops are open to any
LHS-Chicago, whether UIC-affiliated or not. If you cannot attend a scheduled workshop, the library can arrange a group session. Contact your Library Liaison or the Education Coordinator for more information or to arrange a group session.
Orientations, Specialized Instruction, and Outreach Programs
Information Services librarians often provide specialized
instruction for groups of faculty or staff.
Additionally, librarians are happy to work with special outreach programs
(incoming students, for example), or orientation programs.
Contact your school's Library Liaison or the Education Coordinator for more information.
