Fall Semester 2021 officially kicked off in full swing August 23rd at the School of Health Sciences in Central Islip, housed with the Touro Law School. This new semester brings to students a chance to either continue their excellence or turn over a new leaf and start the path toward excellence that is found in the hallowed halls of Touro. Speaking of halls, a brand-new building awaits the School of Health Sciences students who were previously housed at the now defunct Bay Shore location.
Located in the beautiful Central Islip Touro Law Building, students have the opportunity to study in any one of the four floors of the library! This modern library comes equipped with 2 computer labs (on the 3rd floor), many brand-new study rooms (available on each floor and must be reserved up to 24 hours in advance), and the ability to scan (1st and 3rd floor) in more than one location.
Found nestled on the second floor is the Health Sciences Library of books, periodicals, DVD’s, and more physical items for students and professors alike; as well as a giant quiet study room. So, enjoy the offerings but please remember, shush! Keep your voices down no matter how exciting the materials.
Come visit your librarians in room L201 on the second floor of the library as well. In our suite we offer not only the reference services and help you have come to love, but many other items. There is, as always, a full room of reserve books which are generally the most in-demand books for your classes. We also have reserve items such as bone boxes (real and plastic), dry erase markers, dry erase erasers, small dry erase boards, and many other items that will assist you in your studies. (*Please Note: Reserve books and items can only be taken out for 3 hours and cannot leave the building*)
We, the librarians of the School of Health Sciences, look forward to kick starting the new semester at the new location with all our students. Stop by and say hello at L201!
