Library Department

You are welcome to the Electronic Medical Library (E-Library) of the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) located on the ground floor of the Medical Training and Simulation Centre (MTSC). The E-Library is a unit of the UGMC-MTSC and aims to guide its patrons in searching for, retrieving, evaluating and using valuable information. It also seeks to promote research, teaching, and learning by providing patrons with relevant and exceptional resources and services.

Our services include:

  • Article request
  • Literature search
  • Reference services
  • Ask the librarian live chat
  • Off-campus access
  • Training on Information Literacy Skills

The E-Library is open to all staff and students, as well as patients of UGMC to enable them to have easy access to reliable information resources at all times. We are equally enthused in promoting Health Information to patients who wish to know more about their diagnosis by providing them with relevant and reliable resources.

Staff and students can access the databases both at the hospital and outside with their credentials (using their UG or UGMC username and password). Outside the hospital, you can have access to "off-campus" version of the library so that you can still use the databases. Patients who have been given access to the internet will also be able to access the webpage whilst at the hospital but not whilst outside the hospital.

Get in touch:

  • Phone: +233 302 550 843-5 Extn 16009
  • Opening Hours: Monday to Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

You can always count on our support as we look forward to your visit. Remember, "When in doubt, go to the library." J.K. Rowling.
