The A. Alfred Taubman Health Sciences Library delivers high-quality health and biomedical information services to the University of Michigan’s academic health sciences schools, basic and clinical research, bioinformatics and clinical translational science, and Michigan Medicine. Taubman Library also has a satellite location, MLibrary@NCRC, to meet the information needs of interdisciplinary academic researchers and industry-based partners at the North Campus Research Complex.

Informationists are integrated as active partners, collaborators, and library faculty into the teaching, learning, and research initiatives of the Medical School, the School of Nursing, the School of Dentistry, the College of Pharmacy, the School of Public Health, the School of Kinesiology, and Michigan Medicine.

Offering tailored and innovative information programs and services, liaison librarians and informationists teach classes, collaborate on grant projects, consult on systematic reviews, develop web-based resources, and conduct assessment and evaluation, among many other activities.

To meet information needs in today’s fast-paced teaching, research, and patient care environments, Taubman Library provides access to state-of-the-art electronic resources, including electronic books and journals, PubMed, CINAHL, Embase, the Cochrane Library, Web of Knowledge, Stat!Ref, and AccessMedicine.

The collection reflects the current state of knowledge and practice as well as preserves a record of cultural and scientific development in the health sciences. Taubman Library curates and manages these vital research materials to ensure enduring access.
