This is a guide to resources for Physician Assistants available through the UF Libraries and other reputable online sources.
Each page links to different types of resources to assist with your information needs.
Please contact me, your Liaison Librarian Courtney Pyche at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need extra help or have suggestions for additional resources.
Some databases, journals and resources are free for anyone to access and some are only accessible to UF affiliates through the libraries' subscription. To access subscription resources while off campus, you must be logged in to the VPN or the proxy service. Instructions and links are available on the Off Campus Access page.
Access to electronic resources should be seamless from any UF networked computer. Note that some computers in Shands may require remote access.
Eligibility for access: UF students/faculty/staff members with current, valid UF ID/Gator1 Card.
