Services for the Community
The library's primary mission is to serve the clinicians, researchers, staff, and students affiliated with MMC. We encourage members of the public to check first with libraries whose collections are better targeted to serve health consumers. You can also work with your local public library, school or university/college and coordinate an interlibrary loan from the MMC Library.
