Medical Library

The medical library at Stamford Hospital has one of the top collections of clinical research journals among both academic medical center and hospital libraries in Connecticut, as well as a robust collection of more than 2,000 medical and healthcare reference textbooks. It is a resource library for many other hospitals and academic health science centers in the tri-state area. The collection is designed to support the core clinical services and residency training programs at Stamford Hospital and Stamford Health Medical Group.

All online resources are available to staff and affiliated physicians both on-site and remotely, from home or office, via Stamford Hospital’s portal, MDConnect. 

For staff and affiliated clinicians who require journal articles and other materials not available in the library, inter-library loan and document delivery services are provided. Turnaround time on requested articles is often less than 24 hours; for urgent patient-care needs, the library seeks to obtain requested articles within hours.
