UCL supports the teaching and research of the UCL Medical School by providing excellent library facilities on all sites where undergraduate teaching takes place. Textbooks and periodicals are located at the Cruciform and Science libraries on the Bloomsbury campus, the Medical Library at the Royal Free Hospital and the Archway Healthcare Library at the Whittington Hospital.
