- Selecting resources to support advanced research, education, and teaching.
- Providing a professional environment in which users can study, seek and create information, or explore new knowledge sources in a comfortable and conducive setting.
- Allowing responsible users to access the Library's collection on-site.
The Medical Library welcomes gifts of books, journals, and other materials that augment the collection.
