If you are interested in learning more about our extensive collection of research and information services, educational opportunities and resources, join us on Friday, September 24, at 10 a.m. for a virtual introduction to HSLS. This session is perfect for those who may have missed their school-specific orientation or need a refresher on what we have to offer. Our virtual orientation is open to all affiliates of the University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences (Medicine, Dental Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, and Public Health) and UPMC Residents/Fellows.
At HSLS, we understand the importance of finding quality health information resources to meet your academic needs. As a source for scholarly information and interprofessional collaboration, we aim to provide a wide array of research and information services, educational opportunities, and resources that are beneficial to the health sciences community within the University of Pittsburgh.
This virtual introduction will present a wide array of HSLS educational opportunities. We offer classes and workshops that cover many subjects such as:
- Author’s Toolkit classes and workshops that are focused on Publishing with Open Access Journals, Getting Your Research Published, Visual Abstracts, and more.
- Citation Management classes that focus on understanding EndNote (a popular reference manager) or Choosing a Citation Manager.
- Instructional and Visual Design courses that help you to find Free Images on the Web and How to Cite Them, and learn how to make attention-getting presentation graphics with Canva.
- Literature Searching classes and workshops that demonstrate how to use PubMed (a go-to resource for searching health sciences literature) and other databases.
While this article provides just a glimpse into the services and resources we provide, we will be further discussing these topics and answering any questions you may have at our virtual introduction session.
