Student Services: Library Services
The Health Sciences Libraries serve the six professional schools and colleges of the Academic Health Center (AHC). The Bio-Medical Library and Wangensteen Historical Library, located on the East Bank of the University campus in Diehl Hall, primarily serves the AHC programs of dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health and a variety of allied health programs, while the Veterinary Medical Library primarily serves the College of Veterinary Medicine. The Libraries also provide a growing outreach service to health professionals, the general public, and others in the state and beyond.
The Bio-Medical Library’s collection includes thousands of printed and electronic journal subscriptions (over 2,500 electronic subscriptions alone) along with books and non-print materials like DVDs, videos, and anatomical models. The library also provides access to an array of digital resources including MEDLINE, RefWorks, Images.MD, evidence-based resources, and anatomy@tv. A collection of consumer health resources provides high-quality health information for non-academic audiences. Library services include instructional classes, consultations, tours, and free literature searches for U of M students, faculty and staff.
