Carlson Health Sciences Library

As of June 10, 2022, Carlson Health Sciences Library will close as library user and study space, and its collections and some library services, such as interlibrary loan, will be consolidated with those at Shields Library. Librarians who support research, instruction and clinical care in veterinary medicine and public health sciences will retain office space in the Carlson Health Sciences Library building.

Prior to implementing this change, the library formally consulted with the Academic Senate, and will continue dialogue with the School of Veterinary Medicine, in particular, to ensure that faculty, student and clinician needs for access to library collections and course materials are met. See our FAQs to learn more. 

During COVID-19: An APPROVED daily symptom survey is required to enter. Face covering remains strongly recommended for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. Click here for more information about using the library during the COVID-19 pandemic.
