The FMHI Research Library will be closed Monday, May 27, in observance of Memorial Day. Regular hours will resume the following day.
Forget the Cs, summer’s all about As and Bs.
Whether you’re enrolled in Summer A, B, or C the librarians are here to help! Got your syllabus? Stop by or schedule an appointment now, before you get bogged down in readings, midterms and final exams. Let us help you identify sources for your research, track down books and articles for ILL, or outline your topic and paper. We’re here Monday – Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM.
We received three (yes, three!) issues of Health Services Research today. They’re on our shelves waiting to be read.
Need enticement? How about the Tables of Contents for encouragement … ?
