Anne Ross Library

Welcome


The Anne Ross Library aims to provide students of the University of Medicine & Health Sciences with a peaceful, inviting, service-oriented environment that is conducive to learning. In keeping with the mission of the university, we are dedicated to supporting the curriculum, research, and information needs of our students and faculty through the basic and clincial science programs.
To accomplish this mission, the library provides access to an impressive collection of current journals, books, and multimedia; in hard copy and digital formats. The library's subscriptions to electronic databases provide full text access to the medical journal literature, medical reference sources, as well as medical decision support tools. In addition to health science materials, the collection holds information resources in the pure sciences and humanities. The wireless environment on campus extends throughout the library facility and all library desks are laptop ready.
A professional medical librarian and trained library staff are available in person, and via electronic communication, to guide and teach students how to access, search, and evaluate the medical literature. Thus we encourage the ongoing development of information literacy skills, and foster a life-long commitment to evidence-based medical practice.

"Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves,
or we know where we can find the information."
