Peer tutoring

We are open online! Our buildings may be closed, but you can connect virtually to our librarians and staff, and access services, resources, and millions of journals and books — including expanded access through HathiTrust.

The Bio-Medical Library works with campus partners to offer peer student tutoring.  The services are free to all U of M students during scheduled office hours, or by appointment.
