October is National Medical Librarians Month!

The Medical Library Association (MLA) has designated October as National Medical Librarians Month to raise awareness of the important role of the health information professional.

At the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library, the informationists facilitate your work as health care professionals, educators, and students by:

  •  Locating, evaluating, synthesizing authoritative information to support research, education, and patient care.
    •  Schedule a consultation with an informationist (based on their area of expertise) for literature search support or to receive individual training on library resources.
  • Teaching you to find, evaluate, organize, and use information for patient care, teaching, learning, quality improvement, and research.
    • Interested in learning more about EndNote, Zotero, PubMed, and Systematic Reviews? Preparing for a thesis or dissertation? Visit our calendar of workshops.
  • Offering access to relevant and timely resources for biomedical, bioscience, clinical, and health sciences data, information, and knowledge.
    • Explore the expansive collection of databases available to you. Suggest a book, journal, or other resource for our collections.
  •  Providing writing and publishing support for academic and clinical areas.
    • Starting a research project? Learn more about citation management, impact assessment, systematic reviews, and grant resources.
