Provide students with a list of books, journals, and other reference materials in your institution's library or other libraries accessible to students. Include information about book call numbers and the physical locations (e.g., floors, rooms) of materials in the library. Also provide information about electronic libraries and electronic search methods for finding library materials (e.g., National Library of Medicine - PubMed at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/
