The Robert M. Fales Health Sciences Library is the largest health sciences library in Southeastern North Carolina. It offers medical, nursing and allied health journals and books, CDs, and DVDs. The library also provides the local newspaper as well as collections in pastoral care, consumer health, mental health, children’s health and history of medicine. Our librarians, with masters degrees, provide research assistance and teach classes in effective use of library electronic resources.

Health professionals in the SEAHEC region may borrow materials, request literature searches, receive library journal articles or books through interlibrary loans, and attend orientations and databases searching classes. Health sciences students are encouraged to use the library and computer lab as well as checkout books and audiovisuals.
