Melville Library

The Melville Library was established in September 1973. The Library has a collection of print and non-print items in the fields of medicine, nursing and allied health sciences. The Library maintains a Reference Section with a copy of the latest edition of most of the major medical texts for when the circulating copy is off the shelf.

The Melville Library is open to anyone seeking health information or researching biomedical information. We support a family medicine residency program; all health care professionals in our 11 county area; students in medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and health professions; and members of the public, by directing them to appropriate consumer health information.

Orientation for Family Medicine Residents includes the circulation policies, checkout procedures, in-house services, and general library operation.

The Library hours are Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Family Medicine Residents and student learners have 24-hour access to the Library through a keypad entry system.

Although there are many free online resources available to patrons, some electronic resources are available only to students and paid staff or on site, due to licensing restrictions.
