HMS accounts for guests

Harvard Medical School has a guest account mechanism that allows visitors and guests (non-HMS and HSDM employees) to access various School systems when requested by a sponsor. Sponsors must be Harvard Medical School faculty or staff and have a valid Harvard ID number.  

Note – A Harvard Sponsored Role (HSR) is required before an HMS account for guests can be requested. 

HMS accounts for guest roles may initially be requested for up to one year, though they may be extended for additional time if approved by a sponsor. Note that due to the licensing agreements with electronic journals, HMS accounts for guests are not granted access to the digital resources from the library.
