HSL librarians curate our collections to meet constantly changing instructional methods, research interests and information needs. 

Online and Mobile Collections

Our extensive online collection is available 24/7 on and off campus and around the world. Mobile apps are also available for many of the resources that the HSL licenses.  

Print and other Physical Collections

Come to the HSL to explore our in-house collection of books and journals artifacts, microforms, DVDs, and more. Alumni and community members can join our Friends of the Library program to register for a borrower's card.

Special Collections

Rare materials, artifacts or instruments from the 1500s to the present day illustrate the history of the health sciences and often become a part of HSL's Special Collections. The UNC/Duke Special Collections Library Request System allows patrons to register to use special collections from each institution and submit requests online as part of arranging a visit.

Subject Guides

Find selected resources based on the topic you're interested in. Our librarians have created subject guides that are equipped with tutorials.

"I love the HSL because it is a dependable, quiet, tranquil home on campus where I can do my work without distraction. The staff are really nice and helpful, too!"
