    The library's collections span seven centuries of knowledge with medieval manuscripts and some thirteen thousand rare books, bound journals and books in the various health science disciplines, archival records and photographs, and electronic access to thousands of online journals and books.  The library also licenses a number of research databases. Access to these electronic resources is available across the campus and remotely to authorized users. LHL@UH provides 24-hour access to clinical staff in the West Pavilion of University Hospital.

    The library has a liaison program with its constituent schools. It provides a extensive education opportunities through one-on-one instruction at the point of need, and in scheduled workshops or online meetings that address the library's resources, information retrieval, or emerging technologies.  Library resource guides and YouTube videos provide opportunities for online self-instruction.

    Services for the research community include expert literature searches, targeted instruction, collaboration on systematic reviews, consultations in labs and offices, EndNote instruction and support, assistance with compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy, and fast, electronic affordable interlibrary loan.
