Borrowing from the Medical Library
- SIUSM faculty, staff, students, and residents may borrow library materials by presenting their current identification or appointment cards at the Circulation Desk.
- Users will be registered in the Medical Library circulation system which will then give them borrowing and renewing privileges from the Medical Library Catalog.
- Online borrowing is not available from the Medical Library catalog but renewing of materials is allowed.
- To renew books a personal VuFind account must be created. See VuFind Account Creation.
