About the Library
The John W. Henderson Library at the Kellogg Eye Center was established to support the clinical, research, and educational activities of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences. The collection is also open to patients and their families, members of the community, physicians and other health care providers. Clinical ophthalmology is emphasized, with supporting holdings in basic sciences and general medicine.
The library was named in honor of John W. Henderson, M.D., Ph.D., Chair of the Department from 1968 to 1978. The Library’s holdings include over 3800 cataloged monographs, videocassettes, audiocassettes, CD-Roms, and approximately 75 print journal subscriptions. There is also a small collection geared toward patients.
The library is open to the public, but materials circulate only to Kellogg Eye Center faculty, staff, and students.
It is recommended that you make an appointment in advance if you will require any assistance in finding materials and/or using the library collection.
