The Merck Manual, was first published in 1899 as a small reference book for physicians and pharmacists, the Manual grew in size and scope to become one of the most widely used comprehensive medical resources for professionals and consumers. The Merck Veterinary Manual was first published in 1955 as a service to the community.
New Service Added
SRCS, Statewide Remote Circulation Service, is Indiana’s latest and largest resource sharing tool. It links together the catalogs of over 230 Indiana libraries into a single interface containing over 30 million items all held by Indiana libraries. Authorized users can search this combined catalog and request to have selected materials delivered to the Whiting Public Library using the Info Express courier, where they can be checked out. SRCS is not a replacement for the Evergreen catalog, so be sure to check our catalog first. SRCS works with over 15 different ILS systems to provide this extended access and functionality.
