About the Virtual Library and the Hospital Libraries

Who We Are

Who manages the Virtual Library? There is an agreement and collaboration between KentuckyOne Health and the University of Louisville Kornhauser Health Sciences Library. The University of Louisville Libraries manage the operation of the Virtual Library.

Library staff are located at two hospital libraries: University Hospital Library (Rowntree Medical Library) in Louisville and St. Joseph Hospital Library in Lexington as well as at the Kornhauser Health Sciences Library.

The purpose of the Virtual Library is to provide basic library services for KentuckyOne Health personnel and affiliated individuals (including physicians and other healthcare providers). This is done by providing access to research databases, e-books, and other services such as article requests, literature searches, and training.
