We envision partnering with our teaching, research and clinical communities by licensing databases and resources, providing interactive instruction, and designing comprehensive guides and tutorials. We strive to offer innovative services and a collaborative space to facilitate a teaching and research environment to support the high caliber of teaching, research and patient care at Winthrop.

Library History

William C. Hollis, M.D. served Winthrop-University Hospital as Chairman of the Department of Medicine and Director of Medical Education for more than thirty years until his retirement in the late 1970s. He was a mentor to hundreds of physicians and an honored colleague to hundreds more. The Health Sciences Library, constructed in part with contributions from his former students and physician friends, was dedicated to his memory at its opening in May 1989.
