What's happening with the library?
If you've walked from the Medical Center lobby east through the breezeway toward the Smilow Building, you may have noticed that the library facility is closed. I want to reassure you that planning is underway to reopen the Ehrman Medical Library, once Medical Science Building systems are restored. No date has yet been set for that.
We're happy to announce that the Bellevue Medical Library has re-opened! And because we know that medical student study space is so scarce, we are staying open until 10pm on weekdays during the month of February.
Located on the 14th floor (14N12) of the Hospital building, the Bellevue library has 20 computers connected to the NYU network and 4 connected to the Bellevue network (for Misys access). Like much of Bellevue, we do not offer wireless access and, for the moment, cannot offer printing. We hope to see you soon!
If the Library isn't "there" anymore, is it anywhere else? We are still there to serve the information needs of the NYULMC community — any time, any place.
After being knocked out of our facility in the Medical Sciences Building by Hurricane Sandy, the Library continues to operate in an altered but very functional state. Most of our faculty and staff are now occupying offices at 577 First Avenue (at 33rd St).
Although most of our facilities are temporarily closed, our collections and services are up and running: e-journals and e-books are available; anything not available electronically can be obtained on request; and librarians are answering questions and meeting with you and your colleagues.
The Ehrman Medical Library sustained considerable damage to its physical facility and IT infrastructure from Hurricane Sandy. We lost most of our staff work areas, our student study space, and almost all of the onsite print collection, to floodwaters. The area is still inaccessible and as such the Ehrman Medical Library remains closed until further notice.
Friday, November 16th, 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
