We’d love it if you’d stop by so we could meet you in person. Then again, we know you’ve got lots on your mind right now.
OK, so we’re not going to spend a great deal of time telling you about our fantastic website, thousands of journals and books, extensive computing resources, rare books and manuscripts, study areas, photocopying, free classes, e-mail alerts, or beautiful, historic reading room (which doubles as a great place to take a nap, if you need one). Instead, we’re going to focus on a couple things we think might make your lives easier right now. Then, when you’re ready for more, we’ll be here!

Miner Library Online is your gateway to dozens of online research and clinical tools, nearly 300 health-related e-books, and over 25,000 e-journals. You don’t need a password to access our e-resources from computers on the UR campus. In addition, University of Rochester faculty, employees, residents, fellows, and students can use their UR NetID or Medical Center Active Directory account (URMC network and e-mail login) to access Miner Library’s e-journals, books, and databases from off-campus. Need help with this? Contact our Computing Center Help Desk at 275-6865 (or just 5-6865 from a house phone).
