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.

SCOPUS is in the process of loading pre-1996 article records to the SCOPUS database. Last week several glitches related to this project were discovered. Possible issues include:

  • limited source information for some citations
  • incorrect publishing year for some citations
  • non-relevant records appearing in your search results
  • duplicate records

SCOPUS expects these issues to be resolved by February 8, 2008.
