The Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences (LHL) at UAB is the largest biomedical library in Alabama and serves as a Resource Library for the Southeast/Atlantic Region in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. The library was established in 1945.

The collections of the library span seven centuries of knowledge with medieval manuscripts and some thirteen thousand rare books, bound journals and books in the various health science disciplines, archival records and photographs, and electronic access to thousands of online journals and books. Access to electronic resources is available across the campus and remotely to authorized users. The library catalog is also available on the web and can be used to search for print, electronic, and media holdings.

The library has a liaison program with its constituent schools. It also provides a variety of reference and educational services plus extensive education opportunities through one-on-one instruction at the point of need or in scheduled workshops that address the library's resources, information retrieval, and emerging technologies.
