Library Privileges

If you are a health professional licensed and practicing in Oregon you may be eligible for access to information resources via the OHSU Library. To learn more about what is available or to sign up, please go to

Licensed health professionals in Washington may be eligible for a similar program run by the State of Washington. Further details are available here.

All Oregon residents may access OHSU Library physical materials in one of two ways:

  • In person from the OHSU Library on Marquam Hill. Materials borrowed must be returned to the same location, either in person or via mail service. This service is available to all residents of Oregon who have a public library card at no charge thanks to a program facilitated by the State Library. The fee for non-Oregon residents is $50 per year.

  • By using interlibrary loan at your local library. Materials are delivered to your local library and are initially available for a three-week loan, with one renewal. Your local library may charge a fee for this service.
