Our Mission

The mission of the Darnall Medical Library is to provide quality information and services to support the medical readiness and care of the Uniformed Services and their families.


Our Vision

Darnall Medical Library aims to be a forward-looking, innovative service valued by the WRNMMC staff as an integral component of quality healthcare delivery by

  • providing access to a broad scope of current, evidence-based medical, nursing, and allied health literature;
  • responding to the resource and service needs and requests of the healthcare providers;
  • performing literature searches in a timely manner;
  • educating providers on searching, retrieving, and evaluating information;
  • developing and/or implementing novel library service delivery models, particularly at the point of care; and
  • capitalizing on the latest technology to make resources more accessible.
