Library Services for Preceptors

Document Delivery

If you need an article or part of a book that is in our collection, the Librarian will send a copy to your location, usually via email, although other delivery methods are available.  Send your request to Jessica Koos via email at jessica.koos@wilkes.edu or call 570-408-4286. 

Interlibrary Loan

If you need an article that is not currently part of our holdings, the Librarian will obtain a copy for you from another library and send it to your location, usually via email, although other delivery methods are available. Send your request to Jessica Koos via email at jessica.koos@wilkes.edu or call 570-408-4286.

LibGuides

A LibGuide is an online subject guide created by a librarian to assist you with your research. These guides will direct you to article databases, print and e-books, journals, web sites, tutorials, and other resources you may find useful.

Reference Question   

The librarian will provide answers to simple factual questions, using standard sources such as dictionaries, textbooks and drug compendia. Send your request to Jessica Koos via email at jessica.koos@wilkes.edu or call 570-408-4286.

Literature Searching

The Librarian will perform a search of PubMed (or other relevant databases) to identify relevant articles on your topic. Send your request to Jessica Koos via email at jessica.koos@wilkes.edu or call 570-408-4286.
