Home / About / Introduction


The Taipei Medical University Library (TMUL) was established in 1962. It was originally located in the Mu-Shan Learning Center with an area of only 500 m2. In 2004, the library was moved to the Comprehensive Medical Building with an area of 3,300 m2 where it currently contains about 150,000 volumes of books and bound journals within its collection. In addition to circulation services, the library also provides high quality information services such as reference services, inter-library loans, and library instruction. Over the years, two branches of the library have been opened in Wan-Fan Hospital (1997) and Shuang-Ho Hospital (2008). In 2023, with the establishment of TMU Shuangho Campus, the branch library of Shuang Ho Hospital was moved from the hospital to the campus and renamed TMU Shuangho Library. Each has an area of 360 m2. The TMUL’s award-winning reputation is gaining recognition and branching out.


To support education and research, the library integrates information sessions with specific majors, holds many activities and contests, carries more than 10 copies of newspapers and 163 titles of magazines on any given day, and runs a variety of book and fine art exhibitions all year round. The TMUL encourages users to make good use of the library’s resources and expects this environment to be the best possible place for patrons to enjoy themselves while they are here.


TMU Library Located in the Xin-Yi District, in the heartland of downtown Taipei, TMUL strives to provide the best quality of service in medical research and education.
