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 Commons, 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.
