Resource Libraries

Resource Libraries are designated institutions within the Pacific Southwest Region whose quality and size of collections or uniqueness of materials add significantly to the region's resources. The Libraries participate in resource sharing activities, making materials available to libraries at a charge at or below the national maximum for lending within the Network of the National Library of Medicine. They also assist the Regional Medical Library in planning, coordinating and implementing a variety of Network programs and serve as backup reference resources for smaller regional libraries.

In selecting Resource Libraries for the Region, we established the following criteria.
