These Q & A sessions can help all SOM students, interns, fellows, and faculty with any library or research-related questions.
These will be "online office hours," which means you can log in right from your computer at home or wherever else you happen to be.
Each hour will start with a brief (10 minutes or less) intro to a special topic, and then the rest of the time will be open for your questions. Topics will range from how to use point-of-care resources such as FIRSTConsult, to reference manager software EndNote and RefWorks, to an overview of poster design resources offered at the library.
To log in, simply click on the URL posted below, and log in with any name you’d like to use. You’ll be able to hear Handler's voice if you use headphones or have speakers in your computer, and you can type in a chat box to ask questions and she can type back.
