The Health Sciences Library's mission is to advance scholarship, research, education and health care by anticipating information needs, providing essential resources, and facilitating learning for the greater health sciences community.

Library liaison

The library liaison for the Department of Medicine is Andrea Ball. Library liaisons serve the University of Washington health sciences community by sharing information about library collections, services, department-specific resources, procedures for requesting new materials, and by supporting the teaching, clinical, and research needs of each department. 

Remote access

Many of the Libraries' resources are available online, 24/7. However, most of the databases, electronic journals and e-books are restricted to current UW faculty, students and staff. If you want to connect to a UW-restricted resource from outside of the UW campus network, you must log in with your UW NetID.

On the Libraries website, simply click on the resource you want and you will be prompted for your UW NetID when it is needed.
