Nexus Lab

The Nexus is the collaborative learning lab at the Ruth Lilly Medical Library. The concept behind the Nexus is a space where students, faculty, and staff can come together to share ideas and collaborate on projects.


Librarians can teach a variety of classes based on the needs of IUSM students, faculty, or staff. Faculty may contact their Department Liaisons about developing a class tailored to a specialty, curriculum, or research assignment.
