The Health Sciences Library acquires or provides electronic access to books, journals, media materials, databases and a variety of other non-print materials. 

Online and Mobile

Our vast online collection is available day and night on campus and around the world. Get to databases, books and subject guides from our homepage. Mobile apps are also available for many of the resources that the HSL licenses.  

Physical Collections

Come to the HSL to explore our in-house collection of books and journals artifacts, microforms, DVDs and more. Alumni and community members can join our Friends of the Library program to register for a borrower's card.

Special Collections

Rare materials, artifacts or instruments from the 1500s to the present day illustrate the history of the health sciences and often become a part of HSL's Special Collections. 

Access Resources

UNC affiliates can get to library resources from the catalog or the e-resources journal finder.

Subject Guides

Find selected resources based on the topic you're interested in. Our librarians have created subject guides that are equipped with tutorials and instructions on how to access and use each resource.

“HSL is the best! The librarians and staff are very helpful. The Scavenger Hunt was fun and informative way to get to know the library better.”
