The Baptist Medical Library is part of the Library Services' Network of Saint Thomas Health. The Medical Library supports the mission of Saint Thomas Health, its staff and other affiliated programs by providing evidence-based resources to meet the information needs of our users.
The Baptist Medical Library offers a variety of services. The library supplies knowledge-based information to health care professionals so they can make evidence based diagnosis and treatment decisions to provide the highest level of patient care. Employees attending educational programs may take advantage of the library’s resources to conduct their own research.
Members of the community are welcome to use the library's resources at no charge. We provide journals, books and computer resources to help individuals answer their health-related questions. Because every person and situation is unique, the general information we provide cannot substitute for the diagnosis and medical advice of your doctor. A Baptist physician who has examined you and knows your medical history is the best person to provide that information.
The staff will perform searches for library users or consult with library users conducting their own searches. Our librarian is happy to answer questions received via phone, e-mail, fax or visit. The Baptist Hospital Medical Library maintains a clinical and consumer health collection of books, journals and a variety of electronic resources. Materials that are not part of the library's collection are obtained through inter-library loan from other libraries across the country. Let us know how we can serve you so you will have the information you need when you need it.
