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.

PubMed Commons: A New Forum

 NCBI has released a pilot version of a new service in PubMed that allows researchers to post comments on individual PubMed abstracts. Called PubMed Commons, this service is an initiative of the NIH leadership in response to repeated requests by the scientific community for such a forum to be part of PubMed.

PubMed Commons

For more information, see the NCBI blog post: PubMed Commons: A New Forum for Scientific Discourse. PubMed Commons is currently in a closed pilot testing phase, which means that only invited participants can add and view comments in PubMed. The Joining PubMed Commons: A Step-by-Step Guide NCBI blog post provides guidance on how to join PubMed Commons.
