Find Your Library

Your best resource is your local library staff!

Please use our VA Library Network (VALNET) directory to identify them. Please note, this directory is only available on the VA Intranet. 

Library staff can help you navigate the list of online journals and books, as well as the many subject specific databases. They can provide resource training, literature searches and alerts, reference and interlibrary loan services.

For information on library hours, staff, resources and services, connect to your local library website:

(Note: VA Library websites are only available while connected to the VA network)

Online Journals and Books

Your library's alphabetical listing (A to Z List) consolidates locally purchased full-text e-journals and e-books and the VHA National Desktop Library for one-stop searching.

Titles include Harrison's, NEJM, Lancet, BMJ, JAMA, and many more!

The drop down menu below contains links to your library’s unique portal where you can search or browse for online journals and books and get connected to the full text. Selecting a medical center will open a new window. Close the window to return to this page.
