James R. Stookey Library
James R. Stookey Library supports the curricular and life-long learning resources of WVSOM students, faculty, alumni, and staff, as well as the MSOPTI residents and MSOPTI preceptors. To this end, WVSOM collections include print and electronic resources, course reserves, CME materials, and study/learning areas.
Additionally, our mission is to provide remote access to electronic resources to ensure adequate and timely delivery of information to all students and residents as they move through their internships and rotations, as well as to supplement existing core print collections throughout rotation sites as needed to adequately support curricular functions and increase clinical knowledge.
