Health Care Provider DDS delivers journal article and book chapter scans from material owned by the UCD Libraries to licensed health care professionals involved in direct patient care.

The National Library of Medicine’s Loansome Doc article ordering service expedites request processing and extends access to libraries beyond the UCD Libraries.

In this Guide:

  • Health care professionals must register for DDS and submit a copy of their state license and business card before placing requests.
  • Registrants will be contacted with instructions for completing registration including fee information and how to set up a LoansomeDoc account.

After the registration process is complete, users may begin ordering.

Customers are invoiced monthly. Credit card payments are not accepted.
