Resource Libraries

Resource Libraries are designated institutions within the Greater Midwest Region whose quality and size of collections or uniqueness of materials add significantly to the region's resources. These libraries play a primary role in regional resource sharing and serve as backup reference resources for smaller libraries in their respective states. They also assist the Regional Medical Library in planning, coordinating and implementing Network programs and by sharing their expertise, and sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to this effect.
