Library and Other Resources

Radiology Library

The Department of Radiology maintains its own departmental library, which houses over 3,000 hard cover books, online subscriptions to all the major radiology journals, and over 250 CDs/DVDs.  All materials needed for resident rotations are available from the Radiology Library for checkout, eliminating the need for residents to purchase books if they choose not to.  The library is also equipped with its own computer lab, scanner, photocopier and overhead projector.  Computers in the library provide access to software that will assist in the creation of presentations, papers and other projects, including MS Office, Photoshop and Adobe Acrobat Professional software.  A friendly, on-site librarian is happy to help you locate the information you need.  Residents can also suggest resources for library purchase.
