Welcome to the SCNM Library



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 for individual use by appointment only between 8:00am and 5:00pm weekdays, for 15 minutes up to 3 hours. Also, there is a limit as to the number of persons permitted in the Library simultaneously at any given time, spread out in the 7 key areas of the Library. Groups may be allowed in the Library by special request and providing SCNM COVID required practices and procedures are followed.


  • COVID Practices:  Be aware of SCNM’s Policy’s & Guidelines regarding COVID, and you are expected to follow protocols accordingly:  https://my.scnm.edu/ICS/Academics   Non-compliance may result in same-day Reservation/Appointment cancellation.


Students, Faculty and Staff may set up appointment times directly through the Library:  library@scnm.edu  Please let the Library know the date, time, length and purpose of your visit so that we may prepare resources and space accordingly.


Badge access is required and may operate under limited circumstances. If you have trouble, contact Security, or the Library by phone to gain access to the building. Security may require proof of your scheduled appointment. Have phone ready with your Outlook appointment, or print your appointment confirmation.


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.



Badge Required

Don't Forget Your SCNM Identification Badge

Remember, that your SCNM ID Badge is required to be on campus, to enter certain areas of the campus, and for printing.



Booking Space / Rooms on Campus

The Library Study Rooms, first and foremost, are for use when utilizing Library resources, and can be booked on an as needed basis. Occasional study use can be arranged on a limited as needed basis. They cannot be booked/scheduled for recurring appointments for the entire term; though they can be booked/scheduled for up to two consecutive weeks if necessary.


Per the e-mail of March 29th, 12:15pm, from Nancy Gripman, Academic Coordinator (n.gripman@scnm.edu), there may be times you will need to come to campus early or remain on campus for an extended period so that you can be available for your courses or clinic shifts, etc.  Please review your schedule and decide if there are any days you will need to reserve space on campus in a classroom because of time restrictions to travel and/or attend a class or clinic. If this is the case, please submit an email to Nancy with the following information:  Day and Time,  space needed. She will assign a classroom for you for the entire quarter.


For study space, the Study rooms outside of the Library, both the DDC (east wing across from library) and the Commons area (west wing) on the second floor of the Lim Commons Building, can be reserved through the Office of the Learning Specialist, Jill Drowne j.drowne@scnm.edu. Please contact her for more information and the link to the booking/scheduling calendar. You may also contact Jill for scheduling use of the Gym and Yoga rooms.
