Wegner Health Science Information Center was our third stop on our tour of Eastern South Dakota Libraries. See our earlier blog post for a description of all our stops.
On our visit we met with Vicki Carlson, who does cataloging for the collection. Wegner is located adjacent to the University of South Dakota School of Medicine and Sioux Valley Hospital and University of South Dakota Medical Center in Sioux Falls where it serves faculty, students, and hospital staff as well as the public. It also serves other medical facilities in South Dakota. It's very spacious with many windows and on the day we visited it was full of sunlight. They have a large heavily used computer room and archives in the basement where medical students are setting up an area for role-playing. They also have a nice collection of children’s books that address different developmental disabilities.
