Free Article Delivery via Reprints Desk for Oregon MDs & DOs Only

Reprints Desk

This service is available to MDs and DOs as funded by part of their licensing fee.   To register for this service you also need to have applied for and received an OHSU Library Account.

Through a partnership with the Oregon Medical Board, the OHSU Library offers to Oregon-licensed MDs and DOs access to an article delivery service. Using PubMed enabled with Reprints Desk, this service provides a quick and easy way to obtain articles from nearly any journal title including NEJM, Science, Nature and many more.

Step 1: Get OHSU Barcode

Apply for an OHSU Library account using the Barcode Application form.

Step 2: Register for Reprints Desk

After obtaining an OHSU Library account, sign up for a Reprints Desk account.  Signing up will take less than five minutes but processing your account may take up to an hour. This is a two-step process.

In order to provide access for all Oregon-licensed MDs and DOs to the article delivery service, we have established certain limitations.

  • This service is limited to a cost of $100 per article. Requests that exceed $100 will not be filled.
  • For items that cannot be filled through Reprints Desk, contact the OHSU Library as Loansome Doc will no longer be available and its replacement has not been identified. 
  • There is a limit of 150 articles per year (July 1 - June 30) per registered user. Users who exceed 150 articles should contact the OHSU Library to request an exception; otherwise you will be unable to place orders until the beginning of the next fiscal year.
