Welcome!

This blog has been created especially for the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine community with the sole purpose of introducing the resources and services of the Medical Library. 

This blog is a great starting point to view the start-up medical book collections, journals collection and other interesting developments about our Medical Library. It is a good link up page to the wider resources on NTU Libraries.

So do bookmark this page or better yet, subscribe to the RSS feed to be alerted to new content and resources added.

If you have useful relevant resources to share, you are most welcome to email me to post these links on this blog.
