About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

DiscoveryGate Training Session - March 13, 2007

DiscoveryGate - Find the chemistry and bioactivity information that you need

Recently we announced that the Washington University community has access to a new, innovative resource tool to find basic, molecular, biological, medicinal and other chemistry-related information. Medical School clinical, pre-clinical and research faculty, staff and students can use the web-based DiscoveryGate interface to access Crossfire Beilstein, and many more resources.

DiscoveryGate replaces MDL Commander, the software we originally used to search Crossfire Beilstein. A link is available from SCOPUS to DiscoveryGate as it was from MDL Commander.

MDL/Elsevier, producers of DiscoveryGate, is sending database experts to the WU Medical School campus on the afternoon of March 13, 2007 to run a free training session on "getting the most out of DiscoveryGate." You are invited to attend any or all three sessions. The training will be held in:

Farrell Learning and Teaching Center (FLTC), rooms 401A & 401B
1:30 - 2:15 pm Introduction to DiscoveryGate
2:15 - 3:15 pm Searching Bioactivity Databases
3:15 - 4:00 pm Searching Beilstein Database using DiscoveryGate

If your interest is mainly Bioactivity/Drug Discovery you may want to attend only the first and second sessions. Similarly, if your interests are mainly Searching Beilstein/Chemical Structures databases then you may want to attend the first and last sessions.

In order for us to better plan for this event PLEASE RSVP to Carol Murray at or call Carol at 314-362-4736.

Refreshments will be provided.
