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.

Public Access to Research Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy

The Department of Energy has recently released its plan to provide free public access to the results of DOE-funded research. DOE will provide public access using their new web-based portal, PAGES (Public Access Gateway for Energy and Science). Beginning October 1, 2014, DOE will include requirements in new or continuing award agreements for the submission of accepted manuscripts and publication metadata. Researchers who receive a DOE award made or renewed on or after October 1, 2014 will need to comply with the new public access requirements.  

Also starting October 1, 2014, proposals for research funding submitted to the DOE’s Office of Science must include a data management plan that describes “whether and how data generated in the course of the proposed research will be shared and preserved." Other DOE research offices will add data management plan requirements by October 1, 2015.

Classified or protected data and research will not be made publicly available.

For more information, please see the DOE’s Public Access Plan and Statement on Digital Data Management.
