For up-to-the-minute healthcare information, the Health Sciences Library offers high-tech resources and high-touch services that support patient care decisions, staff education, and advanced research. With two locations – one near the lobby at Greenville Memorial Hospital and a Library Commons as part of the USC School of Medicine Greenville – staff provide vital and timely information on diagnosis, treatment, nursing, cost containment, and future health planning, using the latest technology.
Both physical and virtual, the Libraries offer print and electronic books and journals as well as databases in a wireless environment. Electronic resources are available for GHS staff, students and faculty at all campuses and most are accessible from any location.
For quick answers to medical questions or complex research, the GHS Library, staffed by six Masters’ level librarians and two technical assistants is your ready resource.

With a strong service orientation, the library staff has been applauded for its rapid response to requests. Staff will search the literature on various medical topics from select databases, providing information that will assist with patient care or procedures, conference/class presentations, or clinical trials and research.
The Library staff offer classes on demand that give an in-depth look at any Library resource. These presentations are often part of departmental or medical staff meetings; seminars, workshops or conferences; or medical school, nursing or pharmacy classes. All instruction is free of charge.
A print collection is available at both the Library Commons and the main Library. The collection at the Library Commons is considered reference but may circulate overnight under special circumstances with permission of the librarian. The general public may use materials in the Library during staffed hours.
