This Libguide is designed to strengthen liaisons and linkages between the Faculty of Medical Sciences and the Medical Sciences Library.

BEWARE PREDATORY PUBLISHING - INFORMATION RESOURCES TO GUIDE RESEARCHERS

REFERENCE SERVICES

Reference services are provided on demand to members of faculty.

This can be done in person, telephone or via e-mail.

Should you be unable to locate resources after an extensive search, or should you require assistance to locate a full-text article, please use our Ask-A-Librarian online reference service.

INTER-LIBRARY LOANS / DOCUMENT DELIVERY

The Medical Sciences Library facilitates an article request service to users.

If the Library cannot access or does not carry a book, journal or other material that you require, we attempt to source these from another library or a commercial document provider. This service is provided at no cost to the faculty members.

Please consult the staff of the Reference & Loans Unit for further assistance, email your Faculty Liaison Librarian or Ask-a-Librarian.

RESEARCH CONSULTATIONS

ATTENTION POSTGRAD SUPERVISORS !

Please encourage your postgraduate students to schedule individual appointments  to consult a Reference and Loans Librarian at the start of their research. Librarians provide advice on the range of resources available in a specific discipline or subject area, as well as formatting theses and referencing.

Graduate students MUST submit their theses for scrutiny by the Reference and Loans Librarians to ensure that they have complied with the requirements of the Thesis Guide and applicable style manuals. 
Once the requirements are satisfied, the Library will then certify the thesis as acceptable. 

 

The Librarian also assists with -

- the citation style for references and bibliographies
- formatting of theses and research projects
- citation management software - Endnote that can create references and bibliographies.
