The VHA National Desktop Library is an online medical library available to staff VA-wide that provides full-text access to clinical textbooks, journals and databases. You are now on an internet site, but some of the resources in the Desktop Library will link to sites that are on the VA intranet. To access those, you will have to log into your remote account (VPN) or be on the VA network. Resources on the site are only available to VA staff. However, the Veterans Health Library is available to provide health related information to Veterans, their families and caregivers.
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.
For a brief description of each database, visit the Find a Database page. If you are working remotely, you will need to log into Athens Remote Access to access these resources.
