Library Borrowing and Membership for External Supervisors

All current external supervisors who provide placements to students from the Faculty of Health Sciences in the previous calendar year are eligible to apply for borrowing privileges from the University Library including access to the University of Sydney Library’s electronic resources. To receive access to the Library, the applicant must complete an ‘Affiliates & Conferred Academic Titles Holders Card Application.’ Tick “clinical academic” for “category of appointment”.

Please return the completed application, with a photocopy of identification AND a passport size photo (scanned SIGNED form, scanned ID and a digital passport photo will also suffice) to the relevant placement administrator. The form will then be sent to University’s Card Services and processed. Once the application is processed, the applicant will be issued with a library registration number and card.

Library registration can be renewed annually. However, approval is dependent on the external supervisors continuing to supervise Faculty of Health Sciences students on placements. To renew, please fax or post a new form to the relevant placement administrator for processing. Photo and copy of ID are NOT required for renewals.

Clinical Honorary Title for External Supervisors

The Work Integrated Learning team will offer library access, complementary workshops and individualised support as needed to all clinicians who supervise the University of Sydney, Faculty of Health Sciences students. We will also continue to recognize significant contributions of clinical educators through invitation to apply for honorary clinical title. Those will be done on individual basis and by invitation only.
