Medical Library resources and services are provided at no charge. There is also no charge for interlibrary loan or document delivery, whether ordered through ILLiad or Loansome Doc. However, users who fail to return borrowed materials are billed the replacement cost plus a $25 processing fee for each unreturned item.
The mission of Ochsner Medical Library is to deliver high-quality information and professional library services at no cost to Ochsner staff, community medical practices, research, education, and administration.
We serve the entire system. This includes Ochsner physicians, nurses, and staff at all campuses and affiliates, Ochsner faculty alumni, students studying or training at Ochsner, Ochsner patients, their families, and guests.
