    In addition to our regularly scheduled classes, we will gladly customize database instruction sessions, tours, and orientations for individuals and small groups. One-on-one consultations to discuss the specific resources and research tools you’re interested in using can also be scheduled. Faculty members or residency directors can schedule customized instruction sessions focused on the resources and research skills of greatest interest to your students or residents. Let us help you find the information you need for your course work, research, and clinical practice.

    MEDLINE & LinkOut Tutorials
    MEDLINE is the NLM’s premier bibliographic database in the field of biomedicine. LinkOut, a service of the PubMed interface, allows the Mount Sinai community to link directly from MEDLINE to the full text of thousands of journal articles.

    Database Orientations
    The library has over 100 end-user databases. Learn to use Web of Science, CINAHL, Cochrane Library, Harrison’s Online, LexisNexis, MD Consult, ProQuest Direct, PsycINFO, PubMed and many more!
