Nice environment to go and study. If you want to forget about what is happening outside and focus on your research or reading third floor cubicles in the library are the place to go. When I go to those cubicles I don't even know whether it is winter or summer outside. They also have a cool medical museum in the top floor. Phineas Gage's skull and the iron rod that pierced through his skull are in this museum!

Good resource in Boston. I love reading biomedical journals from decades past it always leads to more interesting finds. I enjoy self study of biomedical research for topics that interest me. I am very interested in dense fat accumulation on certain areas of the body.

Some libraries are born to greatness, some libraries aspire to greatness. This library is just great. It has a lot of medical books if that is what you're into. It also has a museum full of medical oddities, which are medical and odd. The staff are helpful and nice. Sometimes I come here when I'm bored and just chat them up. You need a HMS ID to get in or you can get a visitors pass if you're affiliated with some of the hospitals (you can also pay for a day pass I think). If you need medical literature, this is the place.

Be sure to visit the Warren museum and see the famous Phineas Gage skull. At the atrium you can find a great reproduction of Rembrandt's Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp. Worth a visit for sure!
