H.M. Fishbon Memorial Library

Mount Zion
Meeting medical information needs at Mount Zion for more than 80 years

The Fishbon Library has served the information needs of clinicians and allied health professionals at Mount Zion for more than 80 years. As part of an organizational change, the library is now aligned with the Institute for Nursing Excellence within the Medical Center’s Department of Nursing.  With this change, the library has modified its primary mission: to support the education and research needs of our nurses and non-academic medical center staff in support of evidence-based practice.

The Library remains open to all UCSF affiliated staff, but requests from faculty and non-medical center staff may be referred to the UCSF campus library.  Campus liaisons are available to assist all faculty with their education and research needs. 

The Library will continue to be a place for library database access for all UCSF affiliated staff, as well as for health information resources for patients and families.
