This guide is a collection of resources from the UMKC library system, and it will support your learning and patient care through access to the most relevant, reliable, and readily accessible resources from the University Libraries. Click on the tabs to explore see the information we've collected. Click on the "Library Help" tab to contact the Health Sciences library directly. If there are items you would like to see within this guide just email us and we will try to include them.
Always start at the Health Sciences Library homepage to access online resources on-campus or off-campus. You must have a UMKC SSO (single sign on ) to access online resources off-campus.
1. Use your UMKC Single Sign-On (SSO). This was issued to you when you started at UMKC. With this SSO, you can search any of the resources found on the Health Sciences Library's homepage (http://library.umkc.edu/hsl). When you try to enter a restricted section, you will be prompted for your SSO.
If you need help remembering you SSO, you must contact Information Services at 816-235-2000. The Health Sciences Library cannot help you with issues regarding your SSO, only Information Services can do that.
2. Use your UMKC EmplID. UMKC employees are issued an employee number, called an EmplID. It is a 9-digit number. When you try to enter a restricted section, you can enter your 9-digit UMKC ID number followed by the letter k (example: 123456789k) and your last name. This number can be found on your pay statement; disregard the beginning zero at the start of the number, if yours has one.
