This month we want to recognize the amazing work of our dedicated Levy Library staff for National Medical Librarians Month.  

From providing access to cutting-edge, vetted information resources to helping you learn, our Mount Sinai learners, faculty, and staff can rely on the expertise of our library team

Medical librarians fill a wide breadth of roles such as:

  • Teaching health professionals how to access and evaluate information
  • Connecting electronic resources and decision tools to electronic health records
  • Designing and managing health information websites, Internet blogs, and digital libraries
  • Serving on patient safety, quality control, and accreditation committees in their hospitals

A study* in 118 hospitals with more than 16,122 participants found that 95% reported that information provided by a librarian resulted in better-informed clinical decisions. 

Who benefits from library services? Everyone! 

Residents and fellows, faculty, nurses, physician assistants, hospital administration, pharmacists, allied health professionals, and patients!!

Did engaging with a Mount Sinai librarian have a positive impact on you and your work?  We would love to hear about these stories! 

If you have a story you would like to share, please fill out this brief form.
