The Coy C. Carpenter Library and the Dorothy Carpenter Medical Archives are named after the first dean of the four-year Medical School and his wife, respectively. As the library has grown, so have the services offered to students, faculty, staff and community researchers. With the advances in technology, we have seen many changes in the volume and form of information available. The library works to provide the most up-to-date options to patrons so that you can find exactly what you need.
We work to cultivate an innovative, forward-thinking approach in getting information in all it forms to our patrons. The latest technology combined with traditional attentive service helps us to distribute information as quickly and efficiently as possible. We strive to meet all the needs of our patrons and have as our motivating philosophy that of the late Dr. Carpenter, “There is no alternative but success”.
