The Medical Research Library of Brooklyn

Evolving to meet the needs of all users and to provide services and resources for academic, clinical and research needs in a safe and friendly environment.


The Medical Research Library of Brooklyn is located on three floors of the Health Sciences Education Building (HSEB). The main floor on the first level is the Library Information Commons that provides 24/7 access to users. The Library Information Commons has a designated eating area as well as collaborative learning spaces and individual carrels for private study. The second floor is a designated silent study area and also caters to group study. The basement level houses the Advanced Learning Resource Center with individual carrels and classrooms.

Over the years, the Library has continued to evolve to meet new needs and provide very different services and resources beyond its original mandate. The Library provides a safe environment for its users and the Staff is always willing to address your needs.
