The Flushing Hospital Medical Center Library offers many services for our medical staff and employees, including:

Expert Literature Search

We can perform an expert search of the journal literature in a variety of databases and send the search results (citations and full text articles) to you via your email account. Consider using this service when you have to give a presentation, write a case report for publication or need information on an unusual medical case.

Interlibrary Loans

If you identify an article or articles that you need for your work but the article(s) are not available full text online, you can ask the Library Director to obtain this material for you from another library. When received, we will be glad to email these articles to you.

We will provide individual and/or small group training in the use of specific library databases (e.g, pubmed,

Ovid nursing) and library textbook collections (e.g. stat!ref, R2 library).
