Library Services for Employees
All current employees of Erlanger Health System are entitled to use the resources of the Medical Library for both their personal and professional education. The Library is available to you during our regular business hours - Monday through Friday 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. The Medical Library is not open any other weeknight nor on weekends.
The Library is located on the Baroness Campus, Ancillary West Wing 2. Take the F elevators to the 2nd Floor and then turn right. We are all the way down the hall across from the Dialysis Unit.
Employees are entitled to use and access all databases, journals, textbooks and audiovisuals in our collections. Library staff can assist you in getting started using our resources or in locating a specific item. Some reference books cannot be checked out and none of the journals may be removed. You will need your Kronos ID badge as proof of employment in order to register for checkout privileges.
There are 9 workstations in the Library that are available during staffed hours for employees to use for research, printing articles, checking email and taking M-3 courses for HR requirements. Additionally, all of our electronic resources are available at any workstation in the hospital with internet access enabled.
If you are an Erlanger employee and are enrolled in a health-related degree program, the Library can often be a source of support for you as you work towards your degree. We offer assistance in searching databases for journal articles, we offer many, many full text journals online through our web site that allow you to print out articles you need and take them home with you. We also offer one of the largest print collections in the health sciences in this region.
After hours access to the Library is reserved for physicians and certain other health care providers that have a direct patient care need for emergency access to our collections. Access cards for the Library are not generally granted to employees. If you have a specific research need and have the approval of your Department Head or Nurse Manager, you may petition the Library Manager for an After Hours Access card to be issued for a limited period of time (one year). Call the Library Manager at 778-7246 or email her at Langhorne.Waterhouse@erlanger.org to arrange an appointment to discuss your needs.
