The Health Sciences Library is open to all and everyone is welcome to make use of library materials such as books, journals, audiovisuals and online databases onsite for scholarly research purposes. University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill Faculty, Staff, and Students must present their valid UNC One Card in order to borrow materials from any of the libraries on campus. Visitors, who are not affiliated with UNC-CH, can purchase a borrower's card in order to check out books. The cost of the card is $25, however if you join the Friends of the Health Sciences Library the card is free of charge. The card does not provide access to the library's online licensed resources from off-site. All patrons are required to provide valid picture identification. Applications for new borrower's cards and renewal cards must be made before 6pm.
