What is the Purpose of this Page?

This page is meant as an aide to help guide you to FAU resources and known general resources for research publication. At this time the medical librarians do not provide publication services beyond literature review assistance. 

Book an appointment  for a literature review assistance session or simply start an email conversation today! Below are an example of ways we can assist you: 

  • Review resources to consult during your literature search. 
  • Get your questions answered about citation managers. 
  • How can you step up your review? (let's talk about incorporating those subject headings and other strategies!) 
  • Get customized assistance with *your* question.  
  • Troubleshoot gaining access to those full text articles you find in your searches. 
  • Interlibrary Loan support for creating your ILL account and placing article requests. 

 Book an appointment with Tiffany Follin using her Bookings Link HERE. or reach out to the library via the department email HERE.
