Reference Services

  • Reference Service offers assistance with research needs by performing various searches and locating specific materials. This service provides literature search capability with access to both bibliographic and full-text databases relating to medicine and biosciences.

    AutoAlert Searching is another Reference Service offered. Customers may request to have a list of the latest articles published in their specific subject areas routed to them on a continuous basis, or they may contact the Digital Services/Reference Librarian to assist them in setting up the AutoAlert Searching service on their own office computers.

    Reference questions, or search requests, are provided for KCUMB students, faculty, staff, preceptors and clinical community faculty without charge.
