The Health Sciences Library supports excellence in the clinical, educational, research, and administrative functions of the Hospital through the acquisition, organization, and dissemination of information.

The library assures access to the most current and evidence-based biomedical and clinical resources, and provides services in an environment that promotes effective research and study.
