Did You Know? Meet Your Program Librarian

I’d like to introduce you to your librarians!  We are here to help you and your students with projects, research, and training.  Your designated librarians are listed on your program guide along with contact information including an appointments schedule.  We’re happy to assist you in person or virtually with library orientations for you and your students.  You can also contact us to request new books, ebooks, or other materials to support your courses.  


Resource Highlight

HSTalks: The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection Lectures
The library provides access to HSTalks, a growing collection of lectures in the biomedical & life sciences fields designed to supplement course lectures and materials, particularly in an asynchronous classroom.  The collection provides immediate access to over 2,000 online, animated, seminar-style talks by many of the world's leading experts, including Nobel, Lasker and Breakthrough prize winners.

HSTalks offers a complimentary content matching service that allows faculty to send details or topics from your syllabus, and the HSTalks Scientific Content Specialist will pull together a full list of tailored recommendations to include as supplemental course content.

Lecture examples include:

  • Using just-in-time teaching for undergraduate science
  • An Introduction to Nuclear Medicine
  • Drug Delivery 15 lecture series
  • Medical Imaging 7 lecture series (CT, NM, SPECT, PET, MRI)
  • Nursing – Art and Science 8 lecture series
  • Wound Healing 10 lecture series
