About the Medical College of Wisconsin Libraries

The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Libraries consists of the central Todd Wehr Library, located in the Health Research Center, and branch libraries at Froedtert Hospital and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. All of the libraries are located on the same campus, the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC), and they are accessible through skywalks. Watch this short 4-minute video about MCW Libraries to learn more about us. (Flash is required.)

The MCW Libraries serves as the primary provider of information services for the more than 10,000 MCW faculty, residents, students, staff of MCW, and hospital employees of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital.

MCW Libraries also provides information services/health care information to patients and their families.

While our primary users are faculty, staff and students of MCW, Froedtert, and Children's, all three libraries are open to anyone. (Some restrictions apply to employees of for-profit institutions such as law firms, pharmaceuticals, etc.) For more information, contact the library at 414-955-8302.

During a typical academic year, over 400,000 people enter and use the resources at MCW.
