Medical and Research Library

M652 library
Welcome to the Library!

The Medical and Research Library (MRL) at Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) serves researchers,
counselors, and medical practitioners working for or through the Texas Health and Human Services Enterprise (HHS).
The MRL also provides general reference, staff development and information needs of HHS employees and
assists students, other state employees and members of the public in Texas who require health-related information.

The MRL acquires, organizes and maintains a collection of materials in both print and electronic formats; locates
and retrieves documents; and provides assistance and training necessary to access and use information resources
and services. Staff also provide current awareness services in support of the research activities of HHS employees.

MRL hours are 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, except for State of Texas holidays.
