UAB Medicine Patient Resource Library

The UAB Medicine Patient Resource Library is a one-stop information source for all medical-related questions. The library’s original focus was solely on cancer, but after a new location and increased funding, the library was able to expand to cover all diseases, not just cancer.

The library provides a variety of sources for research, including Internet access, medical booklets, reference texts and tapes. Trained staff can assist visitors with their searches for information. The library also has additional space to be used for viewing health videos and for private interactions between staff and patients regarding clinical trials and consultations.
