About DeLib

As an academic medical library, the Distributed eLibrary (DeLib) at Weill Cornell Medicine –Qatar (WCM-Q) represents a departure from the traditional academic medical library. Existing in a distributed environment, the DeLib is essentially a library without walls, transcending space and place. A key defining feature is its disseminated yet interconnected services, resources, and presence that are accessible, flexible, and dynamic.

Students, faculty and staff enjoy access to a vast array of biomedical information resources by means of library “pods,” or clusters of computers, distributed throughout the WCM-Q building, and by mean of wireless network, accessible via laptops and handheld devices.
