Teresa Jewell


Health sciences librarians serve the University of Washington health sciences community by sharing information about library collections, services, department-specific resources, procedures for requesting new materials, and by supporting the teaching, clinical, and research needs of the UW health sciences community.

I can:

  • Help you identify the best databases for your research topic
  • Recommend ways to effectively use HSL databases and develop search strings
  • Help plan your literature/scoping/systematic review process
  • Answer your questions via email or phone, or meet over Zoom
  • Discuss library services and resources with you or your class

Departments and Specialties


  • Interprofessional Education in the Health Sciences
  • Rehabilitation Medicine



For quick evidence-based research on a clinical topic, try PubMed Clinical Queries. Enter the search terms for your topic, then choose your category: therapy, clinical predication guides, diagnosis, etiology, or prognosis. Clinical Queries retrieves 5 articles for each search, and you can view all results for each search by clicking “see all” at the bottom of the initial results list. It's also a helpful starting point for narrowing down a broad research topic.

Are you new to researching, need a refresher after some time away, or just want to expand your skills?
The Graduate Student Research Institute (GSRI) is a self-paced online workshop for grad students to build research skills while connecting with library resources. The live event was in Summer 2021, but the training materials remain available.
