Employees must have a Scientific Library account to use the Library. Anyone interested in having an account should visit the Library
in Bldg. 549 or at the ATRF, and complete a form. The registered barcode is necessary for off-site access to the Library's website,
for use of the computers in the Library, for access to the document delivery request forms, and for checking out materials from the Library's physical collection.
Only employees may check out books and other circulating materials. All new books and media are displayed on the new book shelf for 2 weeks before they circulate.
Circulation times for library materials:
You may renew items ONCE by phone, in person, or online via your Library Account, unless another person has placed a hold on the item.
All materials are subject to recall by the Library at any time.
Once you reach your account login page - you will be asked to type your full name, and your patron barcode (no spaces), which is located
on the back of your employee ID card. Those who have registered their NIH badges with the Scientific Library will use the embedded barcode
(personal identifier number) located on the back of their NIH badges.
Microform reader/printer and copying machines are available for patron use in the Library.
Circulation records are confidential. If you need information from a book that is checked out,
please contact us.
