The Homer Gage Library was founded at the Memorial Hospital in the mid 1920's. Named after the hospital's first chief of surgery, the Homer Gage Library has served physicians, residents, student nurses, staff and the public for over 80 years. Today, the library is a branch library of the Lamar Soutter Library on University Campus which supplies staff and resources, including over 40,000 online periodicals. Homer Gage, located in the "A" Building by the Amphitheater and Cafeteria, offers a small collection of basic medical and nursing textbooks, selected periodicals for browsing, and computers to access online resources. Staff from the Lamar Soutter Library cover the Homer Gage Library traditionally on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. If no staff member is in attendance when you visit, use the house phone, located at the main desk, to call the Library Service Point at Lamar Soutter and ask to speak to a librarian directly Monday through Friday 9:00 to 5:00.
The newly renovated Homer Gage Library is open in its new location across from the Amphitheater entrance. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as of 3/14/20 the library is providing services remotely. Physical spaces are accessible through card access only.
