Request and pick up print items
All users may access our electronic resources from guest computer stations located inside the Library. Due to publisher licensing restrictions, we are not able to allow remote access to our electronic resources to non-OHSU users, including alumni. Computer stations are available during regular open hours.
Non-OHSU community users may request articles that we do not own through our fee-based document delivery service.
If you are an Oregon-licensed MD or DO with an OHSU barcode, your licensing fees pay for use the Reprints Desk article delivery service. Learn more: Resources for Oregon-Licensed Health Providers.
