Library Cards - Faculty & Staff

NOSM faculty and staff may receive a NOSM photo ID card, issued by either the J.N. Desmarais Library (Laurentian University) or the Chancellor Paterson Library (Lakehead University).  The NOSM photo ID card is also a Library card.  Faculty and staff must register with the Library prior to borrowing materials, including equipment.  Contact NOSM Human Resources or Faculty Affairs for further information regarding the NOSM photo ID card.

NOSM faculty and staff can also apply for a Health Sciences Library (HSL) card in lieu of a NOSM photo ID card.   The HSL card permits borrowing of Library resources, including equipment.  It does not provide proof of affiliation with NOSM.  There are several ways to apply for a Library card:

1) In person – visit the Health Sciences Library on your campus to register.  Library staff will verify your NOSM status at the time of registration.

2) Online – Submit the online application form and Library staff will complete your registration.  Library staff will verify your NOSM status at the time of registration.  Your HSL card will be mailed to you or kept on file until you can pick it up. 

Changes to contact information 

Please alert the Library to any changes to names, physical and mailing addresses as soon as possible.
