The Edmond Research Library Collection has been moved to the Clinic Staff Library where it will be permanently housed. The Edmond Research Library has been renovated and is now the home of the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine Learning Resource Center (LRC).
Materials are still accessible via the Staff Library on the Concourse level of the Clinic Building.
The Clinic Library collections focus on clinical medicine and administrative management. The Library retains textbooks and journals for 10 years.
If you feel that our collections need to be strengthened in some areas, please let us know of specific titles. The caveat, of course, would be to balance the purchase of materials with our budget.
Full reference services are provided. Literature searches can be done from a variety of online databases. Traditional reference tools are also used to answer your questions.
Mediated document delivery service
We will provide free, mediated document delivery. You may submit requests for articles to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will triage them for you. You have the option of receiving them in PDF format, sent electronically to your email, or in hard copy via intraclinic mail or fax.
For requests for materials not owned by the Mayo libraries, we can acquire the material through interlibrary loan. There is no fee charged for this service.
