Printing at Ruth Lilly Medical Library Library

All faculty & residents are granted an employee print allotment from IUPUI. This print allotment can be used at any public UITS printer on campus. Visit IU Knowledge Base for a list of STC locations around campus that will have a public printer. To check your current print allotment balance, please visit the Crimson Card homepage.

  1. Click “Manage Your ID Card” and login.
  2. Select “My Accounts” > ”Balance History”.


  • IUPUI print allotments are not accepted on Ruth Lilly Medical Library printers
  • All faculty & residents must purchase additional funds via their Crimson Cardin order to print at Ruth Lilly Medical Library.

What do I need to login/access the Medical Library’s resources?

  • All active IU School of Medicine faculty, staff and students who have an IU network ID (username and passphrase) are able to access Medical Library resources.
  • To streamline access to the library, use of the IU Virtual Private Network (VPN, also known as Pulse Secure) is recommended (but not required). Other options include:
  • Use the EzProxy Bookmarklet
  • Authenticate using your IU School of Medicine username, passphrase, and DUO to access the resource.

How can I find out if I already have an IU School of Medicine computer username and passphrase?

  • Search the IU directory; if listed, then an IU School of Medicine network ID should already be established. For assistance with activating your account or resetting the passphrase, contact HTS (Health Technology Services) at 317-274-5336.
