What's New

New E-Book Collection

The Library has added the R2 Digital Library (RDL) which currently includes 12 titles, to its list of E-Resources.

To access the new RDL:

  • E-Resources tab in center box
  • R2 Digital Library link
  • Off campus, authenticate with your D# and password
  • On campus, you will be brought directly to the RDL site

RDL features a search tool that enhances discoverability. Use the quick search box to search for topics, diseases, drugs, authors and other keywords. Or, use the Advanced Search options to refine your search results.

RDL has one of the largest collections of medical images available anywhere on the internet. All images are embedded at the section and chapter level and integrated into eBooks for a seamless experience. To search for images, simply type your search term in the Quick Search box and then choose the “Images” filter in the left hand navigation box. This will filter your search results to only display those with an associated image

The My R2 area of the RDL allows you to save images, sections, deep links and more for future use.  Create a My R2 account and log in when you access the site to save images, sections, etc.  You may also use the My R2 area without a user name and password to save information over a single session.

The RDL features an A-Z index that includes drug names, diseases and topics. This index is dynamic and pulled directly from the library’s RDL eBook collection. This index can be filtered and sorted to enhance discoverability.

We currently have single-user licenses to each title.  The RDL enables users to print and email sections of any available resource.  To comply with publisher’s copyright policies, if a resource receives more than 60 print or email requests or 20% of the total number of HTML pages that compromise the resource on the RDL over a 24 hour period, print or email functionality will be temporarily suspended for that resource.  Please note that all other access and functionality related to a resource is not affected if printing is temporarily suspended.

Contact Director of Library Services, Bette Bissonnette ( for further information.
