About the Health Sciences Library
Located on the south end of the main Columbus campus of OSU, the Ohio State University Health Sciences Library primarily serves all faculty, staff and students of the Wexner Medical Center and the five Health Sciences colleges (Medicine, including the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, Nursing, Dentistry, Optometry and Public Health) via its physical and vast digital resources, along with the expertise of its librarians and technical staff.
