Online Research Help by a Librarian

Need research help? Whether you're a student enrolled in a fully online program or course, or a more traditional student who prefers to work from the comfort of your home or dorm room, librarians are glad to help.

Send an email to to schedule a time to meet online with me in Zoom.

A major benefit of using the Zoom webinar system is the screen sharing feature that allows us to provide a live demonstration of the library databases and share links to the results. The ability to ask questions in order to better understand your research need is another benefit.



Welcome to your PDPT 529: Evidence-Based Practice & Clinical Decision-Making course guide!

From books to full-text articles and more, the tabs above will guide and direct in providing resources for your PDPT 529 and general research needs.

As the librarian liaison for the Physical Therapy Program I am glad to assist with your research, whether it's determining appropriate sources to consult, help with focusing your topic, database searches, assisting with tracking down those "hard to find" references and resources, and/or overall research strategy.

You may find additional resources not listed in the course guide by going to the Physical Therapy Subject Guide.


Rodney Birch is available by appointment for research consultation. Email him to set up either a face-to-face meeting or online meeting through Zoom.
