Resources for Clinical Faculty & Preceptors

As a faculty member or as an affiliate or associate of the Faculty of Health Sciences, you have access to many resources and services.

Off-campus access

Off-campus access is a service which lets you use a username and password to access the McMaster libraries' electronic resources from off-campus (with the exception of UpToDate). If you are a McMaster student you use your MacID to login from off-campus.
