The Health Sciences Library is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM- 5:00 PM (closed Saturday and Sunday), to anyone with a UVA Health ID. (Our large 24 hours space is open to anyone with a UVA Health ID when the library is open or closed.) On-site services are limited. A mask or face covering is required at all times and social distancing must be observed. The majority of Library staff continue to work remotely to provide services. For more information, please visit this page.
I am interested in integrating scholarly information into the missions of the Health System. Knowledge creation and dissemination is undergoing tremendous change and the Library has an important role in helping our users have access to the latest and highest quality information regardless of its format.
