Education Services

  • Upcoming Classes

    The Education Services Department is focused on making the Tulane University Health Sciences Community proficient in library research. It is our goal to develop a community that recognizes when there is a need for information, what types of information are needed, and how to locate, evaluate, utilize and manage the appropriate resources. Rudolph Matas Library offers Information Access Seminars and Citation Management Workshops by request. Workshops are usually hands-on and may be arranged to take place in the Library’s Instruction Lab or at any campus venue available.

    Types of Classes Available: Individual or Small Group: We can help you navigate the library's web page and resources or focus on one particular resource that is pertinent to your assignment or specialty. Group Orientation: We’ll gladly attend departmental orientations to present a general overview of library resources and services. This will greatly benefit new students, faculty, staff, residents, and visiting researchers. Course-Specific: Faculty can arrange for a Reference Librarian to come to their class and we'll tailor our instruction to the focus and goals of the class. Please provide us with a syllabus.

    Visit the Request a Class page to schedule a seminar or workshop specifically tailored for your class or department. Topics include literature searching, citation management, evidence-based practice, NIH Public Access Policy compliance, and mobile resources.
