The Lister Hill Library at UAB University Hospital (LHL@UH) offers a Table of Contents service to provide UAB clinicians with an easy and effective way to keep up with the biomedical literature. With this service, you will receive by email on a weekly basis the tables of contents from up to ten (10) journals with online content. Full text for the journals may be available electronically through the Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences.

You may identify journals to include in your TOC subscription in the following ways:
  • Search the list of online journals
  • Search for a particular journal title or by subject in the LHL catalog
  • List the journals of interest to you, and we will verify the availability and notify you.
Printing and copying are available for business purposes.  Color scanning to a UAB or UABMC email address is also available.

Windows workstations and Sunray terminals are available in the library for patron use, providing access to all the resources available through UAB Libraries.  Microsoft Office productivity software is available.  Access to hospital systems including IMPACT is available on the six Sunray stations.  The workstations are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Contact the library for additional information.

LHL@UH participates in the UAB Libraries' Document Delivery services (ILLiad).  Patrons may request copies of articles available in print at UAB, or from other libraries.   
Two full-time Librarians and a full-time Library Associate are available to assist with literature searches, answer reference questions, and provide assistance and training in locating information.  Requests for these services may be made in person, by telephone, by email, or by fax.

Do you need books from Lister Hill Library, but can’t get there?  Clinicians have two options for having books from the LHL circulating collection delivered.  Books in the LHL@UH collection are reference only and cannot be checked out.
