Medical Library


Welcome to the Medical Library at SIU Medicine. Our faculty is committed to advancing and supporting the education of our faculty, students and residents and improving the quality of care for our local residents. We’re here to provide an environment of learning and scholarship that helps advance the forefront of medical knowledge and technology. 

As scientific and clinical research continues to expand rapidly, we’re here to help you navigate the massive body of data and connect with resources you need. Our staff can help you access Library resources both on- and off-network. We also provide multimedia resources including video tutorials and written instructions that cover everything from accessing a full-text article to recording lectures.
