Library How-To: Appointments with Librarians

Library How-To is a regular feature that describes tasks and services the University of Manitoba Libraries offers.

What are appointments with librarians?

Just as the phrase suggests, appointments can be made for one-on-one help with a health sciences librarian.

How do I make an appointment with a librarian?

Great question! Go to the NJM Health Sciences Library website (http://libguides.lib.umanitoba.ca/njmhsl) and click on the “Book an appointment with a librarian” button.

 

When you click the button, you will be given a list of librarians to choose from, along with the times that they are free to meet with users. Select a time that is convenient for you.

If you click on the “i” symbol, you will be shown more info about the librarian, including their specific research specialties and their office number.

What can librarians help me with?

All sorts of things! Our health sciences librarians can help you with research support, creating a literature search, help with specific databases, help with citation management software, creating a research data management plan, general questions about your research, and anything else you can think of!

I didn’t make an appointment with a librarian and I am at the library now!

No problem! Speak to library staff at the front desk and we will find someone to help you out. If all else fails, we can show you how to book an appointment at the desk.

Questions?

Speak to library staff at the front desk, phone (204-789-3342), email (healthlibrary@umanitoba.ca), or use the Ask Us service.
