Students are also encouraged to take advantage of all the other Kresge Library amenities, including the newly renovated Learning Commons and Cafe.
The Medical Library's hours are the same as the Kresge Library.
The Medical Library's collection is mainly electronic, comprising thousands of online books, journals and databases. Key resources include: AccessMedicine, MDConsult, Micromedex and UpToDate. There is also a reserve collection of print textbooks and anatomical models, conveniently located in the Medical Library Study Room. The collection is tightly integrated with the curriculum and is selected in close collaboration with the school's faculty.
Library faculty provide information literacy instruction that is integrated throughout the curriculum. Information literacy instruction starts with a six-week introduction to the medical literature as part of the Capstone Project.
