Medical Library & Resource Center

Do you have questions about your recent cancer diagnosis or are you looking for resources in the community? The Resource Center at The Gathering Place is available to help patients, caregivers, family and friends become informed when cancer impacts their lives.

We have a full-time professional medical librarian on staff, Eileen Coan, who divides her time between our east and west libraries. These are lending libraries, where you can borrow books, CD's and DVD's, for up to six months. Our librarian is glad to meet with you, talk on the phone or email to help you understand your pathology reports, blood work, scans, etc. She can help you find clinical trials and make sense of alternative medicine options.

Our library offers more than 1,500 books, audiotapes, videos and CDs on topics including:

The library subscribes to 45 oncology journals and newsletters with the latest treatments, has access to a medical database and a wall of free pamphlets for local and national organizations serving those touched by cancer.
