About the MCL

MCL Mission


The mission of the UK Medical Center Library is to provide our users* with the information and information seeking skills essential for health care education, research, and evidence-based patient care and to promote health information literacy.


*Our users include students, clinical faculty, research faculty, health care professionals, hospital staff, patients and families both inside the University of Kentucky system and throughout the commonwealth (as mandated by our status as Outreach Library for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine).
