Mission and Profile

The Biomedical Libraries consist of the Dana Biomedical Library on the Medical School's Hanover campus and the Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library (MFHSL) at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC). Our mission is to provide health and life sciences information resources and services that advance research and scholarship, education, and patient-care activities of Geisel School of Medicine, DHMC, The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI), the Dartmouth College Department of Biological Sciences, and The Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science.

The Biomedical Libraries' core priorities are:

  • information: providing health and life sciences information that advances research and scholarship, education, and patient-care,
  • education: developing and implementing programs to train and educate faculty, staff, and students in the skills needed to effectively find, evaluate, and manage health and life sciences information, and
  • collaboration: partnering with our clients, being familiar with their needs, and providing and promoting resources and services that meet those needs.
