Peer tutoring

Using the Libraries during COVID-19

Though on-campus libraries are currently closed, we are open online and here to help you with teaching, learning, and research.

The Health Sciences 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.
