Clinical Faculty Resources: Introduction


Getting Access to Library Resources

Welcome! Thank you for all the work you do to help our students become skilled and caring healthcare providers. In exchange for your services, we provide access to a number of library resources. Here's what you need to do:

  1. You must have a current clinical faculty appointment through one of WesternU's colleges.
  2. Your college must submit paperwork to University Academic Affairs for approval. 
  3. Once your appointment has been approved by Academic Affairs, you can fill out the library's remote access request form. We will typically e-mail you to confirm your access in 1-2 business days.
  4. Choose the desired resource from this guide. You will be prompted to log in; enter the username and password you were provided in the e-mail.
  5. If you want to receive the full text of articles the library does not have access to, you can set up an ILLiad account. For more information on using ILLiad, see this tutorial.

Your access to library resources must be renewed every year by July 1. You will receive a reminder e-mail from the library in June.
