Research and Education

About

Education and Research supports the work of faculty, staff, students, and residents. We promote foundational competencies for information retrieval and evidenced-based practice by embedding library instruction into curriculum in Canvas and course lectures. Meet with our librarians one-on-one for research consultations or advice on scholarly publishing.
