Health Sciences Library at Saint Mary’s Hospital

Saint Mary’s Hospital is proud to be home to the Dr. William Finkelstein Health Sciences Library, which is located in the basement of the Sacred Heart Building. The medical library offers 24/7 access to a comprehensive array of print and electronic resources to meet the clinical and research needs of its users. Patrons have access to a full-time, knowledgeable, medical librarian, as well as:

  • 2,000 medical texts;
  • Approximately 90 print journals;
  • PubMed, Ovid Medline, AccessMedicine, AcccessSurgery, and UpToDate;
  • Electronic resources via Saint Mary’s Intranet including over 200 electronic journals and roughly 175 e-books; and
  • 8 computer workstations providing general Internet access and Microsoft Office.

Many resources are also available to medical residents remotely. Consortial agreements throughout the U.S. provide prompt document delivery for those materials not available in-house. In addition, to meet the informational needs of library patrons, the medical librarian offers small group workshops and one-on–one consultations on database searching and bibliographic instruction.
