The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the resources and services available to biomedical sciences (BIMS) students and faculty through the Texas A&M Libraries and librarians.  

Texas A&M has several libraries which are focused on particular subject areas in their collections and services, but every library is open to all students! For biomedical science students the Medical Sciences Library (MSL) is your home library where you will find your Biomedical Sciences Librarian and the services and resources most relevant to your program.

Because there are unique resources and spaces available at the Evans Library, it can provide you with additional support for your other classes.

Start at the Medical Sciences Library website as you would while on campus. Either search the MSL Catalog for the journal or book you need; or click the database you want to use. When you access the TAMU subscription, a prompt for your NetID and password appears.

Resources you can access off campus:

  • Electronic databases
  • Electronic articles
  • Electronic journals (ejournals)
  • Electronic books (ebooks)


  • Some electronic resources don't require off campus logins.
  • You do not need to log in to the proxy server before you look for your resource.
