Don't forget about books! We have an impressive and growing collection of ebooks, and
textbooks that may be helpful supplements to class-assigned readings.

We also have books and textbooks in their old-fashioned physical format. Current textbooks are available at our help desk.

Older editions are often available in the stacks. For some subjects, such as anatomy and histology in which content does not necessarily change all the time, an older edition that you can check out and peruse at home may be perfect.           

You can check our full range of collections (as well as those in all of the University of Arizona libraries) in the library catalog.

Books contributed by StuGo

These are books that have been contributed by the student body of the UA College of Medicine via student government. The collection is comprised of the latest study materials for USMLE Step 1 and copies of all required textbooks for each of the individual blocks. They are intended for use only on a short-term basis (24 hours), and are primarily meant to serve as a quick reference for students who are on campus and want to review content in sources they may otherwise not have readily available. UACOM honor code guidelines apply to use for these materials.
