Accessing Banner Health Library
As a Banner employee, you can use the following services through Banner:

- Request instruction on library resources
- Get access to UpToDate, Micromedex, and Mosbyâ€™s Nursing Skills at the Banner-UMC locations (Tucson, South, & clinics) and on the Banner intranet
For more information, go to Banner Health Library Services or get direct help at: (602) 839-4353.
Getting online access
Banner Health facilities (even those at UArizona) are considered off-campus, so you need a campus NetID to get access to databases, ebooks, and other licensed resources.
If you are a Designated Campus Colleague (DCC), you can access all resources (except for UpToDate) through the library website, you'll just be prompted to sign in with your NetID.
Get online access to most library resources through campus guest WiFi and public computers. Banner employees are welcome to come to our UA Health Sciences Library during public hours to access resources.
Both UArizona and Banner subscribe to UpToDate. Banner employees (including DCCs) must access UpToDate through Banner.
If you're a Banner employee or College of Medicine resident or fellow, you can create a personal "UpToDate Anywhere" login using Banner's UpToDate subscription and use that from off-campus. Every 90 days, you'll get an email to verify your Banner credentials.
See UpToDate information.
Borrowing and requesting materials
Your CatCard is your library card, so you can use it to check out materials from any of the UA Libraries. Contact the CatCard office if you don't have a CatCard.
If you need something we don't have, you can also use interlibrary loan to borrow items from other libraries.
For more information, see borrowing at the Health Sciences Library.
Banner employees can register for a borrower's card in person at the Health Sciences Library. Your account will expire in one year, at which time you will be notified and required to confirm your Banner status.
Banner employees are also welcome to come to our UA Health Sciences Library during public hours to access resources.
