Welcome to the R2 Digitial Library Trial

The Harriet K & Philip Pumerantz Library has arranged for a trial of electronic books (eBooks) from the R2 Digital Library. Western University of Health Sciences students, faculty, and staff may access the eBooks here until the conclusion of the trial on October 30th.

The collection contains over 1000 eBooks related to Medicine, close to 200 eBooks related to Nursing and almost 200 eBooks in the fields of Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Laboratory Sciences, and Dentistry. The R2 Digital Library not only contains eBooks on basic clinical topics such as pathophysiology, but also eBooks on topics of interest to health professionals like health policy, ethics, and patient care. Check out the tutorial about the R2 collection.

Currently full-text is available for all titles. At the conclusion of the trial, the library will evaluate usage data and make purchasing decisions based on usage, pricing, and funds available. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and you may email your comments to the reference department.
