What Does the Library Collection Include?

Banner Health Library Services serves all of Banner Health across five states. Our library collection criteria is to provide resources to accommodate the widest audience possible. We subscribe to many of the largest medical publication providers such as JAMA, NEJM, Oxford, Sage, Springer, and Wiley. 

Many specialty areas may not be covered by our collection.  We want our users to have access to every resource necessary to their clinical practice, business needs, and policy needs, therefore we have a dedicated team to provide exceptional article delivery service and turn-around times. Do not be discouraged if you find that a full text article is not immediately available to you! Request it instead! 

UA Faculty and students also have access to the UA library collection. However even a university library does not have everything. If you find that a full text article is not immediately available to you! Request it!
