Mission

Medical and Health Sciences Collections and User Services The predominant aim of the Medical and Health Sciences Collections and User Services department is to support the curricula, instructional, and research needs of the Faculty, staff, and students of the FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine [COM]. The department is currently staffed by two medical librarians. The department maintains primary offices within the reference section of the S.E. Wimberly Library building as well as an office in the College of Medicine that is staffed a minimum of ten hours per week. The medical librarians design, implement, and teach sections of the evidence based medicine curriculum within the Foundations of Medicine courses, sit on various standing and ad hoc committees within the College of Medicine, assist with the research needs of Faculty and graduate students, and implement programs designed to support the overall mission and vision of the College of Medicine. The department is also responsible for training and access matters for affiliate faculty, most of whom are located off-campus in hospitals, private practices, and health departments. The collection development component of the department incorporates both clinical and basic sciences as well as medical education and affiliate requirements.
