Table of contents What's This?
The University of California, Irvine, Grunigen Medical Library is the largest medical library in Orange County. It serves the healthcare information needs of the UC Irvine Medical Center and College of Health Sciences, as well as providing service to area physicians, healthcare professionals and students, medical libraries, and the public. The current medical library that occupies the 1st floor of the Forest J. Grunigen, M.D. Library and Medical Education Center building was completed in 1984. The medical library underwent a major expansion and renovation project in 1995, increasing study and computer space and creating the Information Technology Center. In 2001 the library was renamed the Forest J. Grunigen, M.D. Medical Library in honor of Dr. Forest Grunigen (1905-1999), UC Irvine School of Medicine founder, graduate, professor, and alumnus. The collection contains records that document significant activities, decisions, and services of the UCI Grunigen Medical Library and includes annual reports, dedication event documentation, planning documents, documentation on the move of the library, meeting minutes and agendas, proposals, newsletters, renovation project documents, space planning documents, and photographs and negatives.
