The collection is located in the College of Medicine Faculty Alumni Lounge in the College of Medicine West Tower, 1819 W. Polk St.   

“This collection is going to be extraordinarily useful for materials,” said Kristi Kirschner, clinical professor in the College of Medicine.

The library provides materials for health science students in areas such as disability studies, anthropology, graphic medicine, performing arts, visual arts and more.
