The Health Sciences Library serves the School of Medicine and School of Graduate Nursing and Physician Assistant Studies. The library is the hub for information literacy, connecting students and faculty to comprehensive resources and services which support learning, scholarship, innovation, patient-centered clinical care, and improving the health of the community. Thousands of electronic journals, textbooks, and databases can be accessed 24/7 from the library web page and curriculum support sites both on campus and off-site. Spaces for active collaborative learning as well as quiet individual study are found in our dedicated facility on the 2nd floor of the School of Medicine Building. Through in-person teaching sessions and self-directed learning modules, librarians assist students in learning how to retrieve the best evidence from the vast scientific literature, how to distinguish the appropriate resources to answer clinical and research questions, and how to obtain and organize the literature for future use.
In addition to the School of Medicine Library, students and faculty can access the libraries located at the North Shore-LIJ Health System facilities as well as the other libraries on the Hofstra University campus, the Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library and the Deane Law Library.
