The mission of our library is to be the center of distinction at Signature Healthcare for managing the knowledge resources essential for the organization’s continuing excellence in patient care, teaching, research, and education. Students may connect with the library virtually through the hospital Intranet or by visiting the library in person. The Health Sciences Library is a non-circulating reference room, but occasionally lends certain print materials with the permission of the librarian.

- Medical Journals
- Patient education materials
- Reserve materials and textbooks
- Drug monographs and calculators
- Diagnostic tools
- Point of Care Resources
The librarian is available to assist you with scholarly research, article and inter-library loan (ILL)
requests and other questions. You may schedule a research consultation or contact the librarian with another request through the Health Science library page on the Intranet portal. You may also contact the following:
