Due to rising cases in COVID-19 and recommendations from university leadership, the Health Sciences Library will be closed effective 5:45 PM ET on Friday, November 20, until further notice. Please check the Library Reopening page for the most up-to-date information regarding library access and hours.

We regret that we are unable to check out Bones & Models during library closure. Our Anatomy Guide is a great virtual resource that is available at all times.

Instructors are encouraged to contact Public Services with any questions.

Electronic Reserves

The Health Sciences Library discontinued its eReserves service of linking or scanning and posting readings to Carmen on behalf of instructors. While HSL staff will no longer post or link readings to Carmen courses, we do provide assistance with identifying stable links that can be added to Carmen courses. 

The HSL website provides information on linking to articles in Carmen. Additional copyright help is available through University Libraries Copyright Resources Center.
