Top 5 things to know about Library Services


Fast, friendly service: When you can’t come to get it, we deliver it to you.  When we don’t have it, we get it for you. Your requests are free…unless you need it rushed! Be sure to sign up for ILLiad, our online document delivery and interlibrary loan system. Look for the link to ILLiad on our home page, or click on First Time Users to get registered.


24/7/365 access to the library building with spaces to read, study, and relax. We have wireless access throughout, so you can use your own laptop or mobile device – or use one of our public computers. The building is staffed Monday through Friday from 8 am to 6 pm, but you can come in anytime with a COH ID.


Expert help with literature searches, finding materials (here and elsewhere), and keeping up with new developments in your field.  Schedule a one-on-one consultation: you set the agenda and location, and we provide the content. Or, send us ( what you’re looking for, and we will provide you with our search strategy, what tools we used, and the search results packaged nicely using EndNote.


Our web site is the gateway to our collections and services.  It’s linked from the intranet, but we recommend bookmarking the site so we’re always just a click away.


Library Services staff strive to provide the City of Hope community with the information resources and services needed to support your work.  In addition to our usual duties, the staff attend and present at conferences, write for publication, and attend workshops and other events to learn new skills and keep up with our rapidly-changing professions. Learn more about your library and archives teams by subscribing to our blog or stop by our office hours:

  • 1st and 3rd Mondays from 1:30 – 2:30 pm in first floor Brawerman;
  • every Tuesday from 11 am – noon at the Helford Hospital patio, near The Bistro; and
  • every Thursday from 2:30 – 3:30 pm in the first floor lobby of Beckman.
