Due to license agreements, most VCU Health employees that work in facilities that are not a part of the VCU Medical Center (MCV Campus) do not have remote access to VCU Libraries resources. All users can search the VCU Libraries collection and PubMed as well as Google Scholar and request free full-text articles using Interlibrary Loan services.
When requesting articles, please be sure to use your VCU Health Email Address when asked for an email during the registration process. This ensures you are recognized as a member of the VCU community and will not be charged for your article request.
Interlibrary Loan services available include the following:
Copies (articles, chapters, excerpts from works)
Request copies from the VCU Libraries collections. Included are items located in storage, non-circulating collections, microforms, general stacks, electronic resources, etc.
Request copies of items not available in the VCU Libraries collections.
Copies are delivered electronically.
Free of charge.
Loans (books, CDs, DVD, dissertations, microform and entire works) located in storage and circulating VCU Libraries collections
delivery of items to your off-campus address
