Medical Library Collection

In the next several years as we move into new and innovative care delivery models, like medical homes and accountable care organizations, our patients will be called upon to participate more fully in their care. Health literacy, patient engagement, and shared decision making will be critical, not only for the well-being of our patients, but for the sustainability and viability of our health care system, both locally and nationally. In order to support this trend, we invite members of our community to contact our librarian to assist with research in the professional healthcare literature, or to obtain specific articles from professional medical journals such as the Journal of the American Medical Association or New England Journal of Medicine.

The Cheshire Medical Center Library collection includes 170 current journal titles. Our library also participates in an international, free, reciprocal lending/borrowing network. We can obtain nearly any article published in the health care literature within 48 hours. Articles can be mailed or e-mailed to requestors, or picked up at the hospital.

Please contact our librarian by e-mail or phone at (603) 354-6664 for more information.
