The Library's Information Desk on the first floor is staffed by librarians from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please contact us at 757.446.5851 or via email at

Our Clinical Medical Librarians (CML) can provide instruction on using the library and its resources, conduct subject research, compile bibliographies and find quick, factual information. CML librarians also work to support the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).

To request a search, please fill out a library literature search request‌ with a reference librarian at the Information Desk, or contact us at 757.446.5851 or via email at

Completed searches may be picked up at the Circulation Desk or sent to the requestor via mail or email.


Computer searches are provided without charge to EVMS faculty, staff, students and honorary clients. Other registered clients are billed directly on a cost recovery basis; community members must pay in advance. The charge for a librarian-conducted computer search is $25 plus any additional costs incurred.
