Health Professionals

Health professionals with a current state issued license and working in a clinical setting may register with the Library as an Area Health Professional and have access to a variety of services including:

  • Books and audio/visual materials
  • Journals—print or electronic, in-house use at any of the UT Health Science Center Libraries
  • Library computers (time limit)
  • Online search service (fee)
  • Interlibrary Loan *(fee)
  • Photocopy and printing (fee)

Due to licensing agreements and contracts, off-site access to electronic journals, books and databases is only available to affiliates (current faculty, staff, and students). Area health professionals are welcome to use electronic resources from within the library during regular business hours.

*Interlibrary Loan services are available for area health professionals for personal or academic research and may not be used by health professionals on behalf of law firms, corporations, or organizations.
