Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital Medical Library

The Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Medical Library provides library and health information resources and services to meet the informational, educational and research-related needs of the medical and hospital staff for their use in the delivery of quality health care. The Medical Library is open to all Hospital employees and medical staff including residents and medical students with proper badge identification. It provides a quiet, academic atmosphere for research and study.

Two professional Medical Librarians are available to perform literature searches on any health-related topic upon request. They also offer search assistance with the medical databases and schedule personalized online search tutorials. Article reprints are provided by Library staff from journals within the collective holdings of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Johns Hopkins’ Welch Medical Library. If unavailable from either library, an interlibrary loan request is submitted to fulfill the requested article. The Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Library staff also serves as exam proctors for employees.
