Custom Workshops & Rounds

Library Services offers virtual and in-person hands-on workshops to introduce you to the most heavily used databases, information resources, and research tools in the health sciences and other health disciplines. Workshop sessions are practical, interactive, and designed to make you a proficient user of our electronic resources. Learn more about our workshops here.

Custom Workshops

In addition to our monthly workshop schedule, suggestions and recommendations for new and custom workshops are always welcomed! If you need a workshop on the use of a particular database for  your team (5 or more individuals), or if there’s a specific function or process you would like an Information Specialist to teach, please submit your request here. Custom workshop sessions can be entirely virtual or in-person.

Below are examples of custom workshops we have delivered in the past:

  • “Infographic Design &Tools” for the Interprofessional Practice team at St. Joseph’s Health Centre
  • “A Practical Approach to Finding Relevant Evidence for Best Practice Guidelines (BPG)” for the Nurse Champions at St. Michael’s Hospital
  • Multiple custom workshops on research impact for the Department of Research at St. Michael’s Hospital:
    • “Measuring your Research Impact: Introduction to Bibliometrics and Author IDs”
    • “What’s your Impact? How to demonstrate your impact  to advance your career”
    • “What’s your impact? How to measure and enhance your research impact”

Clinical Rounds

Information Specialists have responsibilities to support their assigned clinical, research, education and administrative program areas across the network (note: you can contact to find out the Information Specialist for your program/department). In this role, they are keen to collaborate with their assigned program areas’ teams to support resource needs, information organization, respond to research questions, and conduct literature searches. They are also available to support the specific resource and information needs of your Clinical Rounds. For an example of how we support Rounds, visit our Nursing Rounds Resource Guide to see how we support the information needs of nurses and Nursing Rounds programming. Please contact to inquire about support from an Information Specialist for your Rounds.
