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 National Network of Libraries of Medicine.
