The University of Texas Medical Branch Moody Medical Library recognizes that many of our alumni wish to continue using the Library's collections and resources after graduation. Alumni are welcome to use the Library's print and electronic resources onsite. However, our licensing agreements with publishers specify that off-campus access to electronic resources must be limited to current UTMB students, staff, and faculty.
UTMB alumni may:
- Access Library computers to utilize electronic resources. Please see the staff at the Information Desk on the 2nd floor to obtain computer access.
- Use our "Ask a Librarian" service for assistance.
- Search the Moody Medical Library catalog or the Summon discovery service.
- Register with Loansome Doc to use the Library's Document Delivery services to request articles.
- The charge for articles the Library owns is $9 per an article.
- The charge for articles the Library must obtain from another library starts at $9 per an article, but may be more, depending on charges incurred.
- To get started, register for a Loansome Doc account. See the Loansome Doc Fact Sheet for more information.
- Obtain a TexShare card from a Texas public or university library where they have privileges. The TexShare card may then be used to check out print materials from Moody Medical Library (see our lending policy).
- The TexShare Library Card Program is a reciprocal borrowing program coordinated by the Texas State Library. The patrons of participating Texas public libraries and the students, faculty, and staff of participating Texas colleges and universities are eligible for this program, which provides access to materials in many Texas libraries.
For your convenience, a number of freely accessible databases and open access online journals are listed on the right side of this page.
