Welcome to the WSU Health Sciences Library! You can use library resources for finding information to support your education in your classwork, finding scholarly information, and accessing clinical point-of-care resources.
You can access many of the library's resources remotely. Print materials are held in either the WSU Health Sciences Library, or in one of the other WSU libraries. Wherever materials are, if they're circulating (allowed to be checked-out of the library), you can request to have them sent to your campus for easy pick-up. Nearly all online resources are available from off-campus. Use the links provided on the WSU Health Sciences Library website or within this guide to access our subscription databases, ebooks, and more; they will prompt you to log-in with your WSU NetID and password. If you are accessing the library's resources from a clinical site (such as a hospital), you may need to use the VPN to bypass stringent firewalls that may prevent use of our proxy links. Please email the library with any access questions or concerns.

Point of care resources are designed to be used in clinical practice to assist the practitioner in quickly accessing evidence based information, recommendations based on current literature, and guidelines.
