On Wednesday, February 11th, the Medical Library will be undergoing major furniture upgrades. This will result in more individual quiet study space, better designations of the quiet study space and better seating everywhere!
Unfortunately however, this means that February 11th will not be a great day for quiet study at the Library. There will be very little quiet study space available for large portions of the day and the Morse Reading Room will be closed until 4pm.
Due to the crippling blizzard heading our way, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library will be closing at 6:00 pm tonight. It will remain closed Tuesday and will re-open Wednesday.
Students can always go to the 24/7 space to study and use the computers. You can also contact your department liaison or reach us by email.

Earlier this fall, we at the Medical Library decided it was time for a new look for the homepage of the library website. We used an iterative design process to revamp the layout of the page. A draft of the new homepage is now available for your viewing. We invite you to check out the design and "kick the tires," so to speak.
