The mission of the Gustave L. and Janet W. Levy Library is to support the clinical, educational and research programs of the Mount Sinai Medical Center. The Library provides an inviting and modern environment designed to facilitate research, study, and collaboration. Library staff work with students, faculty and staff through their instructional program, by answering user questions and by making available an extensive array of materials to support education, patient care and science.
The Library's collection of e-resources, available both on and off-campus, consists of over 13,000 e-journals in the biomedical sciences, approximately 170 databases, and a rapidly growing collection of e-books. A print collection of textbooks and monographs is also maintained. The Library offers 80 networked public workstations and two computer classrooms. The Library is also home to the Medical Center Archives and Records Management program which ensures retention of records of enduring value, and works with departments on managing their records and answers questions and provides images related to Mount Sinai history. The Library's computing help desk supports faculty, students and staff through licensing productivity software and statistical packages and analysis software, and by answering computer related questions. Lastly, the library supports the integration of technology into the curriculum through its management of Blackboard, the course management system, and by working with faculty on instructional design.
