Library Resources for Geriatrics & Gerontology

Care of older adults is best delivered in teams. Recognizing this, the OHSU Geriatrics/Gerontology portal is intentionally interdisciplinary. Please consider consulting resources outside of your discipline to fully optimize your search.

This site was created by the OHSU Library in collaboration with key partners from the OHSU Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Dentistry, the OHSU Hartford Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence and the Oregon Geriatric Education Center.

If you have comments or questions about this site, please contact Laura Zeigen at or 503-494-0505.

Not an OHSU-affiliated patron?

If you are a licensed Oregon health professional, you can sign up for a library barcode and access a number of resources for non-OHSU Oregon licensed health professionals available through the OHSU Library.

If you are not a licensed Oregon health professional, you can still access a number of resources for non-OHSU users through the OHSU Library. You can also request PubMed articles through Loansome Doc or through interlibrary loan at your local public library.
