Book Account Request

Print books (except for rare books and bound volumes of periodicals) in the Medical Library collection are available for check-out to Ochsner clinical staff, students, and employees. You may check-out either in person during our regular staff hours or we can mail to your location.

Books may be borrowed for three (3) weeks at a time. There is no charge for this service, however users who do not return materials are billed the replacement cost plus a $25 processing fee for each unreturned item.

To open a Medical Library account, complete the information below. Be sure to include the number next to the barcode on the back of your Ochsner ID badge. Once your account is active, you can also place holds and renew materials online within the Medical Library Catalog.

If you have questions, call Ochsner Medical Library at 504-842-3760.
