Library Portal

Access the Lourdes Library Portal 

  • Access to library resources is seamless if you’re in the hospital or most other Lourdes sites. No need to visit the library--gain immediate access to over 1200 ebooks and 2000 ejournals.

  • When you access the site from outside Lourdes, an Ascension Health login screen will appear. Simply enter your Lourdes username and password, prefixing the username with nybin\username. That will authenticate you as a member of the Lourdes medical staff for that session and you’ll be able to access full-text articles, books and databases.

  • Sign up for an account to customize the homepage. Simply click on “Sign up” in the upper right corner and choose a username and password. Creating an account will allow you to bookmark frequently-read e-books or journals (so they’ll be listed on the portal homepage.) Use the Library eResources tool to search for books, journals, or the citation matcher to find a particular article. There is also a Discover tool that searches PubMed and many publisher websites for articles. FYI: the Discover tool is not a substitute for PubMed, but it is excellent at matching article titles or PubMed IDs (PMIDs) if you know either the title or PMID for the article you want.

  • For more information, see the Library brochure.
