J.N. Medical College Library
Faculty of Medicine Library acts as the hub for the students and staff faculty of medicine .It serves the medical community by providing an extensive collection of information sources to support the faculty of medicine research,teaching and patients care missions.It also provides personal assistance to the faculty ,staff and students who have difficulty or complex queries or simply need help finding and using the appropriate resources.The library strives to keep it resources and services current and relevant to the ever-changing landscape of health sciences research.Our most difficult challenge at the moment is to make the transition from the library of past to the library of future(e-library) with limited financial resources.
To help meet these challenges we have embarked upon a process that culminated in the creation of an updated strategic plan to illustrate how the library plans to align it talents and resources in support of the college's mission.Fortunately we have a talented and dedicated team of 18 staff members that has already made significant contributions and all of us are eager to chart the future and share it with our medical fraternity.There is a shifting paradigm from print to online in developing countries so we worked together to find out what is available on the web related to the health information and put it together on this website of the library.For the seamless access of the e-resources to the faculty staff & students we have hyper-linked most the useful sites/pages/links etc.For the convenience to the staff & students,all the information is available through IP and one does not need any password for downloading any article/s.
