The Biomedical Library will be closed due to a campus-wide power outage on Sunday, December 15, 2013. We will re-open on Monday, December 16 from 8am-5pm beginning our holiday hours schedule.
Unfortunately during this time our web server will also lose power. While we will work to restore access to our website as soon as possible, our resources are also available through our ALHeLA911.org, our disaster preparedness back-up, as well as through the USA Marx Library, to which service should not be affected.
The Biomedical Library, like the University as a whole, will be closed Sunday, October 6, 2013 due to expected inclement weather from tropical storm Karen. The library is expected to re-open Monday morning at its regular time.
As long as power remains on at the library all electronic resources will be available via the Biomedical Library's website. In the event of a power outage the resources should still be available through the Marx Library page or ALHeLA911.org.

The Biomedical Library's book collection on campus is moving from the third floor of the library to the first floor. The books will now be housed on the south side of the first floor in the area on the right just past the stairwell behind the circulation desk.
The move will occur over the course of the next few weeks and is expected to be completed by mid-September. As always, please ask any library employee if you need help locating a book in our collection. Thank you for your patience during this process.
