The IMH is well integrated into educational, clinical, and research activities at UTMB. Our linkages to schools of medicine, nursing, and allied health provide many opportunities for learning, collaborating, and teaching in clinical care and research. Within the IMH, a study space is set aside for student use.
The Medical Humanities Graduate Program is well served by the Moody Medical Library, a major resource library for the Southwest. In recent years, the Moody Medical Library has undertaken a major effort to supplement its collection by acquiring monographs, books, and journals required by the IMH faculty for their respective disciplinary work. It now contains adequate reading material for basic courses in history, law, literature, philosophy, and religious studies, as these relate to medicine. In addition to the Moody Medical Library, library resources in Galveston for papers, theses, or dissertations include the Rosenberg Library, the Texas A&M at Galveston Library, and the Galveston College Library. Graduate students in the medical humanities also have access, through the Houston Area Research Library Consortium (HARLiC), to the more than eight million volumes in the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library, Houston Public Library, Rice University Library, Texas A&M University Library, and University of Houston Library.
