The Tom and Mae Bahan Library, located in the Scallon Building, is a specialized health sciences library and resource center. Materials for the biological and clinical sciences, as well as chiropractic-related and business-related subjects, are available.  The library now features an NBCE Reference section for course research and exam prep, as well as an alumni authors display. 

The library maintains subscriptions to nearly every major chiropractic periodical currently in publication, as well as a number of current resources related to the health sciences.  The library also provides access to several electronic databases, indexes and research websites, some of which are available off- as well as on-campus.  Interlibrary loan services are available for those who require access to materials not currently available on premises.  Reference and research assistance is readily available from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday; and 12 noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday.  Students are also welcome to contact us for help at any time.

Alumni authors displayThe Bahan Library has an extensive collection of the “Green Books” (history and philosophy of chiropractic) in rare first editions as well as reprints.

The media section of the library houses a variety of audio and video materials relevant to the mission and curriculum of the college. Many college-wide speaker presentations are filmed and are available for checkout. Copies of some college-produced programs are available for purchase for a nominal fee and a blank DVD.

The library provides six small study rooms for individual/small group study or tutoring and one large room for group study sessions or meetings. An additional study room offers students a hands-on opportunity to study the library's collection of bones and anatomical models individually or with classmates.
