About the Library

As an academic medical library, the Health Sciences Library at Weill Cornell Medicine – Qatar (WCM-Q) represents a departure from the traditional academic medical library. 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 means of wireless network, accessible via laptops and handheld devices.
