Traditional library services have become increasingly portable, especially when academic programs are moved away from the main campus to a satellite site. Essentially, “bringing the library to them” approach becomes an efficient solution in place of making patrons come to the library. At Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (FIU HWCOM), a new Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) program presented such a challenge to the school’s librarians when it came time to provide regular library instruction for Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) courses, and assisting with a related capstone project.

To meet the research and instruction needs of these students, some nursing librarians are using technology for virtual research and instruction. This study was designed to assess the extent to which nursing librarians in North America are providing virtual research and instruction services for APN students.
