Remote Access to Medical Library Electronic Resources

Have you wished you could read library journals like JPO, JBJS, AJN and JAMA from home or on a trip? Hospital staff are now eligible for a remote access account through the Medical Library’s new service, OpenAthens from Eduserv. To request an account, please contact the Medical Library. To access the site from home see the Staff Links page on the hospital’s Internet site.

OpenAthens can serve as your home page for the Medical Library’s resources away from the hospital. Your account login will also be useful if you receive electronic table of contents alerts (eTOCs) from the library, or if you search MEDLINE using our unique web address. Contact the library for more information on these topics. If you would like the librarian to visit your department or meet with you one on one, just ask!

Issues in Comprehensive Pediatric Nursing / Expert Opinion in Neurology

For a brief window we have a chance to test a couple of journals from Informa. Please take a look (while on a hospital computer) and see if they would be valuable in your work!

Issues in Comprehensive Pediatric Nursing focuses on evidence-based healthcare for children and young people.

Expert Opinion in Neurology is a collection of articles from their Expert Opinion journals "that cover the development pipeline of treatments for disorders affecting the nervous system ... including ... Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis, brain tumours, sleep disorders, fatigue, cognitive enhancement, neuro-imaging, spinal-cord injury, neuro-restorative therapies and stem-cells."

Be sure to take a look before March 12! If you think either of these would be worth purchasing, please contact the Medical Library.
