Library Services for International Learners at UHN: After UHN

This guide will provide information on resources of relevance to international learners and provide an overview of evidence-based search techniques

Remote Access

For those continuing with UHN, you can access the Virtual Library's resources via remote access when you are not on site. To do so, you will need a network ID (T-id). Employees without T-id's can request Network Access. Please see Remote Access - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on the UHN Intranet for more information.

For those of you who will be working in other institutions or countries, the information on this page will help you to connect with free or low-cost library resources wherever you are.



HINARI is a free or low-cost digital library established by the WHO in conjunction with major publishers to facilitate low- and middle- income countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. Individuals cannot sign up directly, but eligible institutions can. To see if your institution has access, check HINARI's registered institutions list. For more information on access, see the HINARI eligibility criteria. Training material is also available.



PubMed logo

PubMed provides free access to the MEDLINE database, the premier source for index and abstract coverage of biomedical literature. For those in HINARI-eligible insitutions, you can access PubMed with links to HINARI and free full-text.
