The mission of the Hardin Library for the Health Sciences is to disseminate health sciences information to the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Iowa in support of education, research, and health care, and to preserve the scholarly record for the future.

Hardin Library supports the information needs of Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and the colleges of Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health, as well as the departments of Communication Sciences and Disorders and Health and Human Physiology, both part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). Hardin Library also serves as the research library for the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.

Hardin Library is also home to the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM), Region 6, one of seven NNLM Regional Medical Libraries which aim to advance the progress of medicine and improve public health through increased access to quality health information. Region six includes the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

Hardin is also home to the community engagement section of the NNLM All of Us Program Center (NAPC). The NIH All of Us Research Program works with public libraries to involve people from all over the country in health and disease studies. The NAPC supports the All of Us program in engaging those interested in becoming an All of Us participant and by providing value for those who are currently participating in the program.
