Welcome! About the HSL

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 via its physical and its vast digital resources, along with the expertise of its librarians and technical staff.  

Health sciences librarians are the information experts…with unparalleled knowledge of how to best search and organize content from the databases in our collections, including PubMed, UpToDate, and Cinahl, plus their 6,200 e-journals, from The Lancet, to JAMA to Cell, and nearly 10,000 e-books.

The specialized expertise of the Health Sciences Library supports research and discovery – from helping faculty focus their funding proposals and research questions, to improving faculty access to their most-needed journals, to conducting systematic literature reviews, to creating original medical illustrations that strengthen faculty research submissions to leading journals.
