Librarian integration in a four-year medical school curriculum: a timeline.

Author information

A. Alfred Taubman Health Sciences Library, University of Michigan, 1135 East Catherine Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA.


The Taubman Health Sciences Library (THL) is integrated in all four years of the University of Michigan Medical School (UMMS) curriculum. Information resources are introduced at strategic points throughout the curriculum so that students receive training at times when they are most likely to need the resource. Most of the core instruction sessions are taught in teams that consist of librarians and UMMS faculty, which provides unique learning opportunities for students. This article describes each THL instruction activity in the four-year undergraduate UMMS curriculum and provides commentary on the overall effectiveness of this integrated approach to instruction.
