Service Policy

Whom We Serve

Edward G. Miner Library serves primarily University of Rochester Medical Center faculty, staff, and students.

Members of the greater-Rochester community and surrounding areas are welcome to use the library's resources for health and wellness information. Librarians can provide assistance in locating appropriate materials. Community members may use library materials within the library, or print or photocopy them (subject to US Copyright Law) using the library's self-service printers and copiers. There is a fee for printing and copying.

Remote Access to Library Electronic Resources

If you are not eligible for one of these accounts, you can use the free version of PubMed for health-related research.
