The goal of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library is to provide effective and efficient access to information to all Health Sciences students at their location and at their convenience. As higher education becomes increasingly complex and flexible, the demands for remote access and electronic delivery increase. The library maintains a digital video studio with equipment for capturing, editing, managing and distributing a video library that will provide both live and stored video content. The main purpose of this facility is to provide opportunities for faculty to create educational opportunities in digital video format.

An active member of the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) since 1970, Eccles Library has a collection of medical and health sciences federal government documents. In addition, we do have some Utah Department of Health documents; however, the two other libraries on campus, Marriott and Quinney Law are designated state government document libraries. Most government documents can be fournd in our Library Catalog. However, for pre-1990 documents, the library's MEDOC index can be consulted. Many federal and state documents are available online. Additionally, you can find government information via our Government Documents, Agencies & Databases page. The Government Documents collection is located on the main level (2nd floor.) Don't hesitate to ask our Reference staff for assistance.
Materials on the History of Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy are part of the general collection and may be found on the upper level, mostly under the classification WZ.
