Medical libraries

Geisinger Library Services makes it easy for faculty, staff and students to access and use quality health information for patient care, teaching, learning and research. There are two libraries: the School of Medicine Library for the school’s students, faculty and staff, and the Health Sciences Library for employees and learners working and training in the system. Each library provides content, tools and services to meet the unique information needs of the user community. If you are a member of the public seeking health information, please contact Geisinger’s Community Health Library.
