    About Library Services for the College of Medicine (CMED)

    The Library Services which support CMED are primarily located within the Opperman Learning Commons, which operates as an annex of the University Libraries. The Opperman Learning Commons is designed to be a 24 hour/7 day-a-week group study space, focusing on the promotion of both the educational objectives of the CMED and for life-long learning of medical professionals.  The medical library collection is nearly 100% electronic, in order to provide 24/7 on-site and off-site access to library resources.  The Learning Commons is also fully supported by an on-site faculty-level medical librarian, in addition to support and services offered through the University Libraries.  The medical librarian is also integrated into the CMED curriculum in order to provide a high level of educational instruction and support.  Drinks in sealable containers are permitted in the Learning Commons, but food is prohibited.  This follows the University Libraries' Food and Drink Policy.
