Doctor of pharmacy students have access to hundreds of databases, online books, and journals via the UNC Health Sciences Library’s Web site. Your Onyen account will allow you to access these resources when you are not on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus. When you are on campus, you do not need to login in via Onyen to access resources. The only resource not available off campus is Micromedex.
