Welcome to the SCNM Library

 

LIBRARY OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

The SCNM Library has a lot of essential resources and services that are important to the students, faculty and physicians at SCNM. These include very unique physical materials, and even unique online resources only accessible in the Library. As part of the Library’s effort to continue to provide access to these essential library resources and services, while also helping to keep the SCNM community safe and healthy, it has implemented some guidelines and procedures for visiting the Library and obtaining resources.

 

The Library is accessible by appointment only between 9:30am and 3:30pm weekdays, for 15 minutes up to 3 hours. Also, there will be a 7 person limit in the Library simultaneously at any given time, spread out in the 7 key areas of the Library.

 

Students may set up appointment times through the Dean of Students office:  dos@scnm.edu    Faculty and Physicians may set up appointments through the Library:  library@scnm.edu   Please let the Library know the purpose of your visit so that we may prepare resources accordingly.

 

For any Library questions or assistance, please contact the library by e-mail as the primary method of communication. Due to the library’s limited hours and staffing, the library staff is more likely to be able to respond by e-mail at most any time in the order they are received; though delays may occur. If extensive assistance by phone is necessary, scheduling an appointment during the above mentioned Library hours will be required.
