Using your Rush account to access the library's online resources

Members of the Rush community may access most library resources (e.g., PubMed, CINAHL, eBooks, ILLiad, etc.) from off campus with their Rush username and password.

To access materials, start at the Library of Rush University Medical Center's home page. Click the link to the resource you need, and you will be prompted for your username and password. Once you have entered your information, you will be taken to the resource.

Use your Rush account for off-campus access to library resources

Students, residents, faculty and employees of Rush University Medical Center and Rush-Copley Family Medicine residents are automatically granted access to the library's online resources and do not need to complete an application or request access. 

If you are a Rush-Copley Family Medicine resident or a Rush student, faculty member, resident or employee, the proxy server will accept your Rush single sign-on credentials. These are the same credentials you use for your Rush email (, your on-campus PC, the University Portal, My Apps, or RUMC Epic access. If you have a working login for one of these services but aren’t able to access a specific library resource, please contact the Library Services Desk by phone at (312) 942-5950, by chat, or by email at for assistance using it. If you cannot remember your Rush information (email address or password), please contact the Help Desk by phone at (312) 563-2527 (or 3-CLAS from any campus phone).

Rush University Medical Center staff should call (312) 942-4357 (or 2-HELP from any house phone).

As the library uses Rush single sign-on for all resources, our staff cannot reset your Rush password.
