Customized Instruction

Faculty librarians are available to customize instruction to meet the needs of your group, department or class. This service is available to faculty, students and staff in the schools of the health sciences and UPMC residents and fellows. Sessions may be held in one of the Falk Library classrooms or at your location.

Course-Integrated Instruction: Liaison librarians are integrated into undergraduate and graduate programs in the six schools of the health sciences. They collaborate with instructors to design sessions that teach research skills specific to a course or assignment. Librarians may also develop tailored web-based subject guides, handouts, tutorials or videos to integrate into courses and support teaching and learning.

Specialized Instruction:  Faculty librarians can customize classes or presentations on a wide variety of topics to meet the needs of your group, department or class. Possible topics of interest include:

  • Research data management
  • Data visualization
  • Scholarly communication and research impact
  • Evidence-based searching
  • Citation management
  • Instructional and visual design
  • Molecular biology software

If you do not see a topic that meets your needs, contact us and a librarian will consult with you on a specialized session.

New Faculty, Student and Staff Orientation: Liaison librarians can customize orientation sessions to introduce new faculty, students and staff to relevant library services and resources. Orientation sessions are typically tailored to class or research needs and cover research tools specific to those needs.
