Group Instruction

The Library of Rush University Medical Center provides instruction to the students, staff, and faculty of Rush University Medical Center and to Stroger residents. These sessions can be scheduled 9am-6pm Mon-Thurs and 9am-4:30pm on Friday.

Librarians can provide an introduction to library services, database searching (including PubMed, Ebsco CINAHL, and Scopus), best tips to access Library material, or RefWorks. We are happy to customize an instruction session to meet the needs of your group.

If preferred, the Library can provide instruction sessions in one of the METC computer classrooms. We can also use your regularly scheduled classroom.

For more information or to schedule a session, please email the reference librarians at or call (312) 942-5950.

Individual Instruction

Set up a one-on-one instruction session with one of our expert librarians! We can teach you the basic or advanced searching strategies and citation management using RefWorks. If possible, bring a current project or assignment to use as an example. Appointments are available Monday - Thursday, 9am-6pm and Friday, 9am-4:30pm. Appointments are offered at no cost. To schedule, please fill out an online appointment request form, email or call (312) 942 -5950.
