Databases & Resources Print Page


Welcome to the Lister Hill Library liaison page for the School of Dentistry. As liaisons we are here to make sure that you are getting the help you need with library resources, databases, searches, and training and instruction. Feel free to contact us anytime. Office hours at the School of Dentistry student lounge are by appointment.    If you let us know in advance, after exams we'll stop by with the popcorn machine and make popcorn!  We look forward to working with you.

Some of the things your library liaison can do for you:

  • group or classroom instruction
  • individual consultations
  • research support
  • database searching assistance and instruction
  • AND we want to serve as a point person and advocate for you!  If you have a need or concern, please let us know.  We will make sure that the right person receives your suggestions and input!

We look forward to meeting you and working with you (whether that meeting is in-person or only online)!
