The Baugh Biomedical Library Circulation Department is located on the first floor as you enter the library. Although the Biomedical Library serves primarily the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health, and the Harrison School of Pharmacy, all students and faculty of USA, as well as the members of the community are welcome.
Services include: assistance in locating library materials and printing, checking out library materials, providing study room keys to medical, nursing, allied health and pharmacy students, confidentially managing patron records, and assisting patrons with various other needs.
The Circulation Department also provides access to the Veterans Room (The Bunker) to all JagVet students, regardless of major.
Most books may be checked out for a 14-day period, with two 14-day renewals. Other materials have differing loan periods, depending on the item.
Food and drink is allowed in the Biomedical Library study areas and in the breakroom on the first floor.
If you order a food delivery, you must be present in the library lobby to accept delivery. The Circulation Desk will not be able to accept or hold your order for you.
The Biomedical Library enjoys providing a comfortable and inviting study atmosphere for our library users while also protecting the Library’s collections, equipment, and furnishings. We ask that you endeavor to use drink containers with lids to minimize damage to library resources and facilities. Please dispose of any food and drink related trash in the provided trash receptacles, and please report any spills to library staff immediately so they can be cleaned as soon as possible. Your cooperation with these guidelines will also ensure the full use and enjoyment of our resources and facilities for all current and future users.
Only students of the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health Professions or Pharmacy are permitted to check out study rooms at the Biomedical Library.
JagVets who are not in one of the aforementioned schools cannot check out study rooms, but do have access to the Veteran's Room (The Bunker).
- Study rooms are checked-out on an "as-available" basis and cannot be reserved.
- Individual study rooms may have only one person at a time and may be checked out for the entire day.
- Group rooms are available to groups of two or more students and may be checked out for one four-hour block per day.
