Transcript: Research Services Overview

Fran Allegri, Head of User Services introduces you to our research services.

Hello, I’m Fran Allegri, Head of User Services at the Health Sciences Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

I’m excited to introduce you to some of the expertise and tools available to help you with your research.

Let’s begin at the Health Sciences Library’s homepage.

A key starting point for you is the Research Hub at HSL, which you can learn about here.

There are Research Hubs at Davis Library and Keenan Science Library too.

Some services are the same but each Hub also specializes and refers researchers to the best person or location for their need.

This also includes referrals to services and resources beyond the libraries. Let’s go back to the Research Hub at HSL page.

Whether you are at the idea stage or wanting to disseminate the results of your research to the general public, the libraries have people, partners, events, services, and spaces that can be of help to you.

Some examples include help for those who are new to doing research at UNC.

You can find specific tips and help in the resources section.

Finding funding opportunities or collaborators through the University’s portal, preparing Data management plans, conducting systematic reviews of the literature, complying with federal agency public access mandates, developing conference posters, or choosing a journal for publication, tracking your research impact, and we have over a hundred other self-help guides that I have not mentioned.

You can find them here

You do not need to remember all of these or how to get to them later.

Use Ask a Librarian by phone, chat, email, or dropping by and a link to help is at the top of pages of the HSL website.

These are examples of the type of help that you can receive from the Health Sciences Library for your research.

When you’re in doubt, or don’t know where to turn, please ask us. We’ll be happy to help or help you find someone who can.
