Learn how to find books, electronic resources, and other material using WorldCat Discovery

Off Campus Login

When accessing WorldCat from off campus navigate to the HSLIC Homepage:

1. For UNM Affiliates, click "Sign in to UNM Health Sciences Library and Informatics Center" and enter your NetID and password.  This will allow you to see HSLIC's holdings, WorldCat Libraries' holdings, and access electronic resources.

When off campus this prompt will appear with a link to sign into your UNM Health Sciences Library and Informatics account.
