Additional Information:

Becker Medical Library’s extensive print journal collection, previously shelved on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors of the library, is currently in offsite storage due to library space constraints. Patrons needing research articles from this collection that are not available online may request them through Becker Library’s inter-library loan service. If the original print journal is absolutely necessary, arrangements can be made to retrieve it from storage at the requestor’s expense.
