Health Science Resource Instruction

We can tailor a library instruction session for faculty for a specific course or even to a specific assignment, teaching students how to evaluate resources and results, how to search effectively, and how to make full use of the library’s resources and services. We will also work with a group of individuals or one on one regrading the finer points of searching and discovery within the health science literature.

To schedule a class, simply contact the Matas Library Reference Department. For more information on Library Training and Instructional Services, please go to the Library website:

In 1988, the United Nations, General Assembly expressed deep concern at the pandemic proportions of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Noting that the World Health Organization had declared 1 December 1988 World AIDS Day, the Assembly stressed the importance of observing that occasion (resolution 43/15). Today, over 41 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. To combat HIV/AIDS , malaria and other diseases is one of the Millennium Development Goals which all 191 United Nations Member States have pledged to meet by the year 2015.

The World AIDS Campaign (WAC) has chosen as its theme from 2005 to 2010: “Stop AIDS. Keep the Promise.”
