The Edward L. Pratt Library plays a unique role in fulfilling Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s mission. As one of the most extensive library collections at any pediatric hospital, the Pratt Library helps researchers and clinicians harness more than 1 million resources focused on a single goal: improving the lives of the children in our care.
“The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one’s devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas − a place where history comes to life.”
− Norman Cousins, American editor, essayist and peace and health advocate.
We offer faculty and staff access to a one-of-a-kind collection of print and electronic content, with a focus on child health and connected with both the University of Cincinnati and a consortium of 88 Ohio colleges and universities. We have the resources to support your decision making.
The Pratt Library Staff is located in D2.70. This is where you can come to pick up books, ask questions about our services/collections or to consult with a Librarian. The Pratt Library Business Center, located in D2.47, houses 9 computers and a small collection of contemporary books for the use of Children’s staff. Badged access to D2.47 is available 24/7.
