Library Services

Services Available through the Library

Document Delivery

When the article you need is not readily available through our collections, there are several other options for acquiring it. This includes obtaining it from another institution or purchasing it from the publisher.  The Regional Medical Library participates in several resource sharing programs including DOCLINE and WorldShare.  In most cases, articles are obtained quickly and delivered right to your email, always in compliance with copyright regulations.   

Literature Searches

The medical librarian can perform specialized, in-depth literature searches of the professional medical literature using National Library of Medicine's PubMed database, UpToDate, CINAHL Complete and other resources, as well as our individual journals.  Results are delivered via email. 

New Issue and Table of Contents Notification

The Regional Medical Library subscribes to a variety of online nursing and biomedical journals.  Visit our Online Journals page to see all of our currently subscribed titles and a link to the current issue.  Most journals provide email alerts when new issues become available.  Never miss an issue - visit your favorite journal's page and sign up for new issue notification.         

Orientation/Instruction Sessions

Contact the librarian about scheduling a training session to meet your needs.  Topics include library orientation, targeted database searching, citation assistance, and locating health information on the Internet. Suggestions for other topics are always welcome.

Copyright Advisement

The Regional Medical Library is your copyright resource center and staff are encouraged to be versed in best practices for using copyrighted material.  Check with the medical librarian about your options for when you need to obtain multiple copies of copyrighted content or if you want to show a videoclip during a meeting.  Have questions about fair use - just ask!  Check out this brief video to learn more about copyright basics.  Bottom line...when in doubt, seek permission.
