Libraries at Yale

When you pursue a Master’s in Public Health at Yale School of Public Health, you will receive standout research support from the Yale University Library (YUL). As a YSPH student, you will have access to 15 libraries, over 22,000 electronic biomedical journals, thousands of online resources including e-books, bioinformatics tools, and clinical resources, and two public health librarians dedicated to your information needs and subject specialty. YSPH MPH students collectively generate 60 publications per year on average, and are supported by librarians with citation management, database searching, searching grey literature, annotation of scholarly literature, literature reviews, critical appraisal, and publishing. The public health librarians meet with students one-on-one and in office hours, and visit classes to teach students research skills related to specific assignments.

As a member of the Yale Medical campus, your home library will be the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library. The Medical Library is open 106.5 hours each week, has a friendly staff of 38, a newly renovated Information Commons with both Windows and Mac desktop computers and printing services, reservable meeting rooms, and books for borrowing (plus laptops, audiovisual equipment, boardgames, and more). Additionally, the Medical Historical Library contains special collections of rare books and manuscripts, prints and drawings, historical medical posters, and the Cushing brain and tumor specimen collection.
