Who May Use The Library?

The mission of the UT Southwestern Health Sciences Digital Library and Learning Center is to advance health care discovery and innovation through service and partnerships.

Use of Library resources is restricted to activities in support of the educational, scientific, and clinical missions of the campus. UT Southwestern reserves the right to remove anyone who fails to adhere to these policies.

All UT Southwestern affiliates should abide by the campus ID badge policy and wear it where it can be seen.  Anyone in the Library may be asked by the campus police for identification at any time.

Authorized Library users may fall into one of the following categories:

  1. Students, faculty, and staff of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center are the primary clientele of the UT Southwestern Library.
  2. Residents and clinical faculty from Children’s Medical Center and Parkland Health & Hospital System and other authorized Parkland professional staff (e.g., physician and non-physician providers, nurses, pharmacists).
  3. Special guests, Library-hosted meeting participants, and those participating in collaborative partnerships, such as UTD Masters Leadership Program, JAMP, HPREP, STARS, etc.

Access for non-badge holders will be available on a limited basis (by appointment only) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  To request access, please complete the Ask Us online form by selecting “Library Access Request” from the Subject drop-down menu; advanced notice is required (minimum 5 days).  The appointments are primarily intended for research assistance with a Library staff member or Library tours.

If you do not find what you need, please Ask Us, use Live Chat (when available) or call 214-648-2001.
