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.  Please keep voice levels for group study to the level of polite conversation. Furthermore, the use of headphones for listening to audio is required at all times. Food and drinks are permitted in the Learning Common, but individuals are responsible for cleaning all spills and the disposal of their trash.

Services: Includes reference services and research support, the management of a nearly 100% electronic library collection, in order to provide 24/7 on-site and off-site access to library resources, and curriculum-integrated information literacy instruction. The Learning Commons is staffed by a faculty-level Medical Librarian and a Medical Library Associate, in addition to support and services offered through the University Libraries.  

Location: CMED 1427, 490 East Campus Drive. The College of Medicine Building is located at the northwest corner of East Preston Street and East Campus Drive, physically attached at the east end of the College of Health Professions Building. Access is available via CMED fobs and by appointment.

Staffed Hours: Monday through Thursday, from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM and Friday 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM, with minor exceptions. Examples include staff time-off, meetings, and in-class instruction. The Learning Commons is not staffed during weekends and there are no formally scheduled hours during the CMED Mount Pleasant Campus summer break.
