Library services at Rochester Regional Health

Who gets what?

As the merger of all five hospitals moves forward, we frequently receive requests from team members at Clifton Springs, Unity, and United Memorial for access to Werner Medical Library’s electronic resources  Unfortunately, we are not able to grant access to team members outside of Rochester General or Newark Wayne Community.

The library’s agreements with publishers do not include access for non-legacy sites.  Renegotiating these contracts will require additional funds. We are trying to address this information inequity and encourage you to let your leadership know this is important to your operations.

The following chart will help you determine what library services and resources are available for you.

If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Mamo.
