Medical Faculty

A guide to acquaint UNLV School of Medicine faculty with the health sciences library at the Shadow Lane Campus.

Off-Campus Access

You are considered off-campus if:

  • You are using a personal device(s) at any location without eduroam wireless available
    • Set up eduroam wireless on your mobile device(s) to use at Shadow Lane and 2040 W. Charleston
  • You do not have a VPN set up on your personal device(s)
    • Set up a VPN  by following instructions at OIT
  • You are using a desktop computer at a location other than Shadow Lane or 2040 West Charleston Blvd


If you are off-campus, the main ways to access resources are to:

  • Follow links presented throughout this guide
  • Go through the library website to resources
    • It is highly recommended you bookmark this guide or the library website and always go to databases or journals through the bookmark.
  • Use proxied links (you will see somewhere in the url)

You will be prompted to log in with your ACE Account credentials to have access to the resource if you follow any of the above routes.


If you attempt to go directly to a resource while "off-campus" you will either be denied full access or be presented with a pay wall.

InterLibrary Loan

In order to request items the HSL does not have, you will need to set up an account in the ILLiad system. This can only be done after you have requested and received a library barcode.

Once you have successfully registered for an ILLiad account, when you use library databases, you can auto-fill request forms if the library does not have access to an article you find.
