R2 Digital Library: Home

Integrated and searchable medical, nursing and allied health e-book content.

What is R2?

The R2 Digital Library is an eBook database specialized for the health sciences, integrating content from leading publishers on a single web-based platform. It offers fully integrated and searchable medical, nursing and allied health source book content from key health science publishers. With one of the most extensive selections of Doody’s Core Titles, the R2 Digital Library has content essential to the modern health science library. 


The R2 Digital Library does not allow direct download of eBooks, but the web based application allows eBooks to be accessed at any time. Users are able to print or email sections of the R2 digital Library by using the Tools icon across the top navigation bar. They are also able to save searches, search results and sections to their My R2 profile.


Users may print sections of any resource on the platform. To comply with publishers’ copyright policies, if a resource receives more than 60 print requests or 20% of the total number of HTML pages that comprise the resource on the R2 Digital Library over a 24 hour period, then print functionality will be temporarily suspended for that resource. Users will receive a notification upon crossing the 75% threshold of allowable print requests. 



The R2 Digital Library can be accessed with any web-enabled device.
