Health Sciences Library

The SVHC Health Sciences Library has a comprehensive collection of health-related books, journals, videos and other online resources.

The library is primarily for our health care professionals. But community members are welcome to use it for their needs, too.

The library is on the lower-level of the Putnam building at SVMC. It is open most weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

If you have a question about library services, resources or search topics, contact the health-sciences librarian at 802-447-5120 or by email at
