Request a Literature Search
Library literature search services are available only to students, faculty, and staff of the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine. If you are a Hofstra student who is not enrolled in the School of Medicine, please contact the Axinn Library Reference Desk at (516) 463-5962. If you are a Northwell Health employee who does not have a teaching appointment on file with the School of Medicine, please contact the Library at your specific institution.
Librarians will deliver a list of citations or abstracts (when available) relevant to your clinical or research question. Most searches are completed within 2 business days, but complex concepts require additional time in order to ensure that you receive a comprehensive search. If this search is of an urgent nature (involves a grant deadline, etc.) please call Wendy Herman at 516-463-7594 or Debra Rand at 516-463-7537. While every effort is made to expedite urgent requests, the Library cannot guarantee results the same day a request is made.

If you would rather conduct the search on your own, and are unfamiliar with our databases and searching techniques, please complete a Reference Consultation Form and an appointment will be arranged.
