The Fahey Health Sciences Library

The Fahey Health Sciences Library, located on the campus of Lawrence Memorial/Regis College, supports the information discovery needs of not only LMRC students and faculty, but also of all employees in the entire MelroseWakefield Healthcare system.

How the library staff can help you

The library staff is at-the-ready to support LMRC’s students and faculty — as well as any employee of MelroseWakefield Healthcare — in searching for evidence-based information through a wide array of electronic databases to support efforts and projects in any area of healthcare:  patient care; continuing healthcare education; research projects; quality improvement projects; creating or updating research bibliographies; and more.

“Essentially, we are here to support really busy clinicians, faculty and students in finding information to help move their research forward.”

Terri Niland, Information Specialist/Head Librarian


The Fahey Library is accessible to students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is staffed Monday-Friday, with both day and evening hours.

In memory of Robert J. Fahey, MD
