HSLS Access 24/7

Out of the office? Need access to an electronic journal article at 2 a.m. on a Sunday? No problem! HSLS can assist you with your information needs 24/7, whether you are sitting in your campus office or in a Starbucks in Hawaii. With an HSLS account, licensed databases and e-resources are readily available from our Web site and can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection. HSLS accounts also allow you to access the computers located in HSLS libraries.

Remote Access

An HSLS account is simple to create. Fill out the online form, entering your valid Pitt or UPMC e-mail address. You will receive a confirming e-mail message, with a link to click on to activate your account. If you have questions or concerns about your HSLS account, please contact HSLS account representative Megan McKeown at mcm16@pitt.edu or 412-648-9926.

Another option for University of Pittsburgh faculty and students is Pitt’s Secure VPN, which provides access to most HSLS and other Pitt online library resources.
