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.

eRA - NCBI partner to provide cross platform linking

eRA Commons has partnered with the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in providing a link to My NCBI in Commons. My NCBI includes "My Bibliography," a tool for users to maintain and manage a list of all of their authored works such as journal articles, manuscripts accepted for publication, books and book chapters.  A new feature now available in My Bibliography facilitates the management of publication compliance with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Public Access Policy. From the new Awards View, eRA Commons users are able to see whether their publications are compliant with the Policy, start the manuscript submission process, associate their NIH extramural awards with their publications, and designate delegates to manage their bibliography via My NCBI.

The partnership between eRA Commons and NCBI allows Commons users to benefit from My Bibliography's ability to populate citation data from PubMed, PubMed Central, and the NIH Manuscript Submission system (NIHMS), and to readily maintain accurate, structured and up-to-date bibliographic information. The improved data quality resulting from this integration enhances the ability of the NIH to manage and monitor the results of its research portfolio.

Important Dates:

As of April 2010, linking a Commons account to a new or existing My NCBI account allows references saved in My Bibliography to automatically appear in users' Commons accounts.

As of July 23, 2010, PD/PIs will be unable to enter citations manually into eRA Commons and must use My NCBI's "My Bibliography" tool to manage their professional bibliographies.

As of October 22, 2010, Commons will no longer display citations that a PI has manually entered into Commons. All citations previously entered manually into Commons will be removed from the Commons system. Therefore, these citations must be added to My Bibliography so that they will continue to appear in Commons and can be associated with future annual progress reports.
