All those employed by the UMC Utrecht have free internal and external access to the online collection of the Utrecht University Library and the UMC Utrecht library. In addition, every staff member can become a free member of the University Library for borrowing the printed copies by applying for a library card at the Utrecht Science Park University Library (Heidelberglaan 3). This is a once-only requirement and solely for authentication purposes. University Library membership is also required for requesting articles or books that are not available in Utrecht.

Staff members who are attached to the Utrecht University as teachers can apply for a Solis account (Solis-ID) at the University. The Solis ID gives researchers and teachers access to numerous information systems and facilities both within and outside the UMC Utrecht and Utrecht University.

Medewerkers die als onderwijsgevende verbonden zijn aan de Universiteit Utrecht kunnen een Solis-id aanvragen. Dit account geeft onderzoekers en onderwijsgevenden zowel binnen het UMC Utrecht als buiten het UMC Utrecht toegang tot tal van informatiesystemen en faciliteiten van de Universiteit Utrecht.

Iedere student is automatisch lid en kan gratis gebruikmaken van de online collectie van de Universiteitsbibliotheek Utrecht en de bibliotheek van het UMC Utrecht.
