Basic Overview

There are many resources at the UCI Libraries devoted to the study of biomedical engineering.  The collection is young as is the academic program here and it is focused upon the general materials, and the specific research interests and coursework that is offered at the present.  It is anticipated that the collection will grow rapidly in parallel as the program expands its emphases and more faculty and students join it.  Some of the current special interests reflect strong interdisciplinary interests and include: tissue engineering, molecular engineering, protein engineering, laser technologies, transplantation, optic sensors, biomedical devices and instrumentation, implants, biomechanics, cardiovascular instruments, Microelectromechanical Systems or MEMS or BIOMEMS, relationships to biotechnology, computational methods and genomic statistics and relationships.

The Subject Guide for Biomedical Engineering is what you should depend upon as a pathway to special subject-related resources. 

The UCI Library Website is your point of departure as you seek information - - instructions on connecting from off-campus should be followed - for additional information, consult with OIT at 824-2222

You are likely to probably depend on the Science Library (SL) for most of your needs in the life sciences, physical sciences, information sciences, engineering & technology, clinical and health sciences, however you may have to use the Langson Library (LL) for business/management, social & behavioral sciences, arts, letters & literature, Government Information and perhaps the Grunigen Medical Library (GML) for clinical and other medical resources.  There is also the Gateway Study Center for all-night studying.
