If you are an Oregon-licensed health professional, please see this guide: Resources for Oregon-licensed Health Providers.
OHSU's electronic resources are not available off campus to users who are not current OHSU students, staff or faculty.
Electronic resources are available to all from guest computer stations located inside the Library. Computer stations are available during regular open hours. There are also several freely available public resources, some of which can be found here. Due to publisher licensing restrictions, we are not able to allow remote access to our electronic resources to non-OHSU users, including alumni.
Non-OHSU community users may request scans of articles from material we own in print 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.
We are unable to deliver articles that we do not own print copies of to non-OHSU community members.
