Welcome to the UNLV School of Medicine Library!

The School of Medicine Library (SOML) is an educational facility that serves the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine students, staff, faculty, and the Las Vegas community.

UNLV residents and fellows have 24/7 electronic access to our extensive collection of databases, e-books, e-journals, and more. UNLV residents and fellows also have access to librarian support for their clinical practice, research, and scholarship.

Please use this guide as a starting part for accessing and using the library and our resources. 

We look forward to assisting you with your research needs!

UNLV Identifications

ACE Account. This is a university-level account assigned by the UNLV Office of Information Technology. This is one of the most important accounts for your time at UNLV. It grants you access to UNLV licensed library resources from off-campus.
