New Medical Library Kindles are Here!

In addition to FIU Medical Library now offers 10 Kindle Touch e-book readers for HWCOM faculty, students, and staff. Each Kindle reader comes with more than 25 medical titles. See the list of all medical e-book titles.
The Kindle e-book readers are available for HWCOM faculty, students, and staff. They can be checked out at the Medical Library Help Desk for 2 weeks. (No renewals.)  Each Kindle comes with a charger, a carrying case, and a complete instruction for the convenience of library patrons. The medical e-books on the library’s Kindle devices are not available online or for a library patron’s personal Kindle. They can read only on the library’s Kindle devices.

Please note that connecting this device with a personal Amazon/Kindle account is PROHIBITED, and the library will not be liable for any consequences if a library patron chooses to do so.

The Kindle devices and the medical e-book collection have been funded by the Express Mobile Technology Project Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) Southeastern/Atlantic (SE/A) Region awarded to FIU Medical Library in 2012.  FIU Medical Library continues to strive to provide and improve the mobile technology offerings for library patrons. If you have any questions about this grant project, please contact Bohyun Kim, Digital Access Librarian at

Possible Issues with Off-campus Access to E-resources

FIU UTS and Green Library are in the process of upgrading the library’s firewalls and other core network infrastructure in order to keep the libraries at the leading edge of computing space, performance, and security.

FIU Medical Library shares some systems with Green Library and as a result, during this upgrade process, you may experience problems with off-campus access to library e-resources intermittently. The issue should be resolved completely within two weeks.

If you encounter any problem, please inform us at
Thank you for your understanding!
