Library graphicThe Baylor Health Sciences Library provides information services and resources in support of the educational, research, and clinical programs of the Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry and the Baylor Health Care System.

The library meets the academic and professional information needs of HSC-BCD students, faculty and staff by providing ready access to current and comprehensive information sources and services. The library contains approximately 32,000 print volumes and subscribes to over 6,000 online journals. The library provides access to a variety of electronic databases, including Ovid MEDLINE, CINAHL, Scopus, Web of Science, ERIC, Micromedex, UpToDate, and many others. The library is open 80 hours per week and is staffed by 5 professional librarians and 10 highly skilled paraprofessionals.

Also at BCD, the Instructional Computer Laboratory is a PC-based classroom with video projection and multimedia equipment. This facility is operated by the Office of Information Technology for use by Baylor College of Dentistry students, faculty and staff. The PCs are networked to allow access to electronic information resources at the college library and on the Internet. The laboratory is designed for hands-on, computer-based instruction to small groups of students. When not in use for classes, workshops and training sessions, ICL is available for self-directed learning using computer-aided instruction and other audiovisual materials. Many of the materials have been developed by BCD faculty to support the instructional program.
