Search Services

Professional Librarians are available to conduct literature searches on a medical topic. The average turn-around time for literature searches is three business days per request. Literature searches are available to faculty, residents, fellows and post-docs of TMC Library affiliated institutions. Fee-based searches may be available to non-members on a case-by-case basis.
