Access to Medical Library Resources from Clinical Locations

Yale New Haven Hospital

If you are physically at the Yale New Haven Hospital, York St. or St. Raphael campuses, you can access the library’s collections through any networked computer. This also includes locations such as Long Wharf, Shoreline and many YNHH satellite locations.

Using the proxy server for library resources

Note: The Medical Library Proxy Server service will be discontinued soon. EZproxy provides an easier way to access library resources from off-campus locations.

The Medical Library's proxy server is primarily for the use of Yale New Haven Hospital employees and affiliates who wish to access library online resources from outside the Medical Center. It may also be used by faculty, students and staff of Yale University who, for some reason, are unable to use the the Yale VPN.

If you are not at YNHH, you will need to authenticate with your Yale or YNHH credentials. If you have Yale University credentials, please use the Yale VPN.  If you do not have university credentials, please use the Medical Library Proxy Server.  If you have not yet applied for a proxy account, please do so using your email address. 

Offsite Clinical Locations

  • West Haven VA Hospital
    Full access to Yale resources is available from three Yale School of Medicine Library Research Workstations located in the VA Medical Library (2nd floor of Building One). A Yale NetID is required to logon to the computers. 
  • Bridgeport & Greenwich Hospitals
    Yale clinical faculty should go through their Hospital Information Services to request that their computer be configured for VPN or proxy access. Use the Yale VPN in combination with the WiFi for full access to Yale's online resources.
  • Connecticut Mental Health Center
    The Medical Library Proxy Server should be used to access library resources. CMHC employees with a Yale affiliation can apply for a proxy server account.
