Research guides

Research guides are online resources created by our librarians to help get you started with your research or guide you through a common research or library process like printing, learning a reference management tool, or tips for effective database searching. The research guides provide you with needed assistance when you are off campus or when a librarian or library staff member is unavailable.

Additional UNLV Resources

UNLV has put together a self-paced course on WebCampus for researchers conducting human research. This resource contains an overview of the IRB process, Cayuse navigation guidance, exempt research, and much more.

Office of Research Integrity

The mission of the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) is to create and support an environment that promotes the ethical and responsible conduct of research while assisting researchers to comply with federal, state, NSHE, and local regulations with regard to research. Through key committees, related programs, and administrative activities, the ORI oversees UNLV policies related to research integrity, including the coordination of policy development and policy implementation. The ORI also provides support for the responsible conduct of research

Office of Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Programs serves as the principal point of contact for individuals seeking and/or managing externally funded research, scholarship, and creative activities. It enhances and facilitates research and other sponsored activities by providing the university community with professional and effective administrative and financial expertise in the management of sponsored projects while preserving the rights and interests of the university, researcher, sponsor, and community.

Alumni and community members

The School of Medicine Library is an academic library unaffiliated with any Las Vegas hospital. We do not perform mediated literature searches, systematic review searches, pdf collection and delivery, interlibrary loan requests or Docline requests by proxy.

Library faculty may be available to provide research assistance to alumni and community users. Request an appointment with one of our librarians for advanced research assistance.
