Technology in the Library
All current OHSU faculty, staff, and students can access the Library’s licensed electronic resources remotely with their OHSU network credentials.
If you are not currently affiliated with OHSU (including alumni), you do not have remote access privileges. Please see Resources for Oregon-Licensed Health Providers or Non-OHSU Community Users.
OHSU Library uses EzProxy to make off-campus access simple. EzProxy knows that you’re an OHSU member, and thus knows to give you access, in two ways:
- You start your research from the OHSU Library website, or
- You use a “Find @ OHSU” link from a database like PubMed.
You will not be able to access articles directly from a publisher’s website or from an article database. You must use one of the two options above to ensure those sites know you are a valid OHSU user.
- For more information about Remote Access, please see our Access to OHSU Library Resources Remotely guide.
If you have questions regarding off-campus access to Library resources or any other issues, please contact us.
The Library provides fee-based printing to OHSU members through the GoPrint application. GoPrint printers and print-release stations are located at the BICC on the 3rd and 4th floors on Marquam Hill, and in the Graduate Learning Resource Center at the RLSB on the South Waterfront.
You must have money or “value” on your GoPrint account to be able to print. GoPrint requires a $5.00 minimum for adding money to your account.
Cost: Black and white printing is $0.08 per page; color prints are $0.25 per page.
How to print from an OHSU computer:
- From an OHSU computer, select the “Print” option and choose which printer you would like to print to (B&W or color). Click “Print.”
- Go to the print release station and enter your OHSU network credentials. This will bring up a list of all the items you have printed.
- Select the jobs you wish to print, and follow the prompts on the screen.
- You can also delete print jobs from the print release station.
How to print from your own computer or smartphone:
- To print from your own device you will need to set up wireless printing using an application called PrinterOn.
- When you’re ready to print, go to the PrinterOn landing page and click Print.
- Printing is available at a cost of $0.10 per page in the Library in the BICC building, 3rd floor. Please see staff at the Service Desk for more information.
The Library provides a fee-based, black and white copier on the 3rd floor of the OHSU Library in BICC. Non-OHSU members will be charged $0.10 per copy.
OHSU staff may request an account from the Copy Center to get a reduced rate for copies. The Copy Center can also help you with color copies and larger copying projects.
Please see Library staff at the Service Desk for help with copying.

Non-OHSU members can connect to the OHSU-Guest public wireless service at no charge. This public wireless network is outside of OHSU's internal network and is not protected by its firewall.

The OHSU Library provides Windows workstations for use by OHSU faculty, staff, and students. These workstations require you to log in using your OHSU network credentials. If you need help with your network account, contact ITG at 503-494-2222.
Computer workstations are located on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor of the Library in the BICC on Marquam Hill and in the Graduate Learning Resource Center at the RLSB on the South Waterfront. All Library workstations have SAS and SPSS statistical software and EndNote.
Two workstations on the BICC 4th floor have special software and can be reserved for up to six hours at a time. One has the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, and the other has Atlas.ti and NVivo qualitative data analysis software and ExpressScribe transcription software. You may reserve one of those workstations from this page.
The Library provides Windows workstations for research use by the general public. These computers do not require a login and they provide access to the internet and nearly all of OHSU Library’s electronic journals and databases.
All Library computer users must comply with the Library’s Guest Computer Usage Policy and OHSU’s Acceptable Use of Computing and Telecommunications Resources policy.
Please note: As these are shared workstations, we DO NOT recommend storing your files on the computer, even temporarily. Please make sure that you store your documents on your network drives (H: or X: Drive) or use your OHSU OneDrive account.

OHSU Library will scan journal articles and book chapters from our print collection on your behalf! There is no charge for this service for OHSU members. You may request articles from our library catalog or through our Get It For Me service. We may be able to help you with other scanning needs—just ask at the Service Desk.
OHSU Library provides flatbed scanners at the BICC on the 3rd and 4th floors on Marquam Hill, and at the Graduate Learning Resource Center at the RLSB on the South Waterfront. Due to OHSU’s IT security restrictions, scans must be saved to a USB drive or to a smartphone.
If you have an account with the Copy Center, you can scan documents on the Library’s copy machine, located on the 3rd floor of the BICC.
Non-OHSU users may use the flatbed scanner located on the 3rd floor of the Library. Scans must be saved to a USB drive or to a smartphone. Non-OHSU users may also request scanned PDFs of articles. There is a charge for this service.
Please see staff at the Library Services Desk, BICC 3rd floor, for help with scanning.
