Library Access for New Medical Students

Before classes begin in August, Class of 2018 medical students are encouraged to register for library barcodes to gain access to the Health Sciences Library’s collections. The library barcode provides access to the library resources when off-campus or on the public wireless network, and is used for book and reserve reading circulation. Early registration can help speed along the transition to medical school, and allows new students to familiarize themselves with the resources available to them. Below are links to instructions for registering, the library’s access policy, as well as library tutorials to get you started.
