Our collection of print books (excluding rare books) and audio books are available for check-out by Ochsner clinical staff, students, and non-clinical employees.

Print books may be checked-out either in person during our regular staff hours or we can mail to your location. Print books can be borrowed for three (3) weeks at a time. There is no charge, however users who do not return materials are billed the replacement cost plus a $25 processing fee for each unreturned item.

Audio books may be checked-out to listen online via website or download to a mobile app for offline listening. Audio books are provided as an all-you-can-listen experience with no waiting for content. Audio books downloaded to a personal device can be kept for as long as you want.
