Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research (FNLCR) personnel must have a Scientific Library account to use
the Library. Any FNLCR employee interested in having an account should
visit the Library in Building 549, complete a form, and receive a barcode.
Either a new barcode will be attached to the ID card, or the existing barcode
appearing on the appropriate NIH badge will be used. The registered barcode is
necessary for off-site access to the Library's website, for use of the
computers in the Library, for access to the document delivery request forms,
and for checking out materials from the Library's physical collection.
Only FNLCR personnel may check out books and other circulating
materials. All new books are displayed on the new book shelf for 2 weeks
before they circulate; audiovisual materials are displayed for 1
week. Circulation times for library materials:
