Visit our borrow, return, renew pages to learn about loan periods and other borrowing details (Eastern Health employees follow Guest borrowing periods).

OneSearch accounts

If you don’t have a current MUN Login ID, a OneSearch account lets you view your library account, request items for pickup, and renew your loans. A OneSearch account does not provide off-campus access to our online resources such as ebooks, ejournals, or databases.

Eastern Health employees (HSC site) can obtain a OneSearch account by visiting the Lending Services Desk in the Health Sciences Library (H1615) with their Eastern Health employee ID.

Need something we don’t have?

You may use our Document Delivery service to borrow items from other institutions. There is normally no fee for this service for Eastern Health employees (HSC site); if a fee is necessary, we will notify you before processing your request.  

You may also recommend a new purchase. Recommendations are evaluated by librarians in consultation with our collection development policies.
