Learning @ Your Pace
New to the Health Sciences Library System? Interested in learning how to search HSLS online resources more efficiently? Check out Learning @ Your Pace:, a Web page containing online tutorials developed especially for HSLS patrons.

Tutorials in the library basics section provide a brief overview of HSLS, instructions for accessing HSLS electronic resources from off-campus, and explanations of basic database concepts. Users can also view a series of tutorials detailing how to use the search.HSLS function to find full-text journal articles, search the PubMed database, or explore the HSLS electronic book collection. Note that all tutorials require the Flash plugin.

Instructors can add these modules to BlackBoard course sites by using the “external links” option. For questions about this option, contact HSLS at or 412-648-8796.
