Library will be closed for Independence Day (July 4, 2013) and Labor Day (September 2, 2013).

The Health Sciences Library uses purchase suggestions, interlibrary loan requests, citation data, and other usage data to help make purchasing decisions that reflect the priorities of the CUMC research community. While it required canceling some less used titles, we are pleased to offer access to these titles.

We encourage you to let us know where you see gaps in our collection.

In addition to the print copies on reserve at our Circulation Desk and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, there is now online access via PsychiatryOnline.
