Health Sciences Library

Baton Rouge General's Health Sciences Library is growing and expanding to serve and provide our community with free health information. Our library is open to the entire community and includes:

  • Computer and internet access
  • Document delivery
  • Interlibrary loan
  • Literature services
  • Medline instruction

Clinical Collection
Our clinical collection consists of journals, reference materials and online resources. We can help you find copies of journal articles and excerpts from clinical textbooks. However, materials from the clinical collection may not be borrowed and must stay in-house to be used for patient care. We are often able to fill urgent requests for information required for immediate patient care and we are pleased to assist any patient referred to the Library.

Consumer Health Collection
The consumer health collection includes books, journals, magazines, newsletters, pamphlets and internet access. You may borrow books, while other resources, such as internet information and journal articles, may be printed or photocopied. The latest news in healthcare, current treatments and local and national resources is now available to the public.
