Abstract: 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.
