The Fordham Health Sciences Library

The Fordham Health Sciences Library serves as the primary library for students in the College of Nursing and Health and Schools of Medicine and Professional Psychology. The Fordham Library contains 115,000 bound volumes, 1,300 serial subscriptions, and more than 12,000 microforms. The collections also contain audio-visual programs related to the health sciences and equipment for viewing or listening to these programs. Videotaped lectures are available for selected courses in the College of Nursing and Health. Group study rooms are also available for nursing students. The library is open 98 hours a week.

A unique cooperative relationship among the area's hospital libraries and the Fordham Health Sciences Library promotes sharing and nonduplication of library materials as well as reciprocal library services for students and professionals in the health care fields. Seven of the hospital libraries participate in OhioLINK; over 100,000 volumes in these affiliated libraries complement the university collections.

Special Collections of the Fordham Library include the McFarland Collection in aerospace medicine, the Aerospace Medical Association Archives, and the Wright State health sciences programs archives. The Thelma Fordham Pruett Rare Book Room houses rare American 18th- and 19th-century medical books.
