RowanSOM affiliated users entitled to access to licensed resources include the following:
- Kennedy Health System staff and attending physicians
- RowanSOM Volunteer faculty
- Inspira Health System Residents and Residency directors
- Christ Hospital Residents and Residency directors
Sorry, alumni are not eligible for off-campus access to the online Library resources. Please see the Library’s alumni web page for Library services offered to alumni.
