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.

Three Becker Library staff receive award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine

Three Becker Library staff have been awarded a Continuity of Health Information Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

Principal investigators Will Olmstadt, Bob Engeszer and Judy Hansen are funded to deliver Project MoSHI, the Mobile School Health Information Initiative.

Using a "train-the-trainer" model, investigators will work with K-12 librarians in the St. Louis metropolitan area.  The goal is to connect K-12 librarians with credible health information on the web, creating health information champions who confidently talk about and integrate health information across the K-12 curriculum.

The MoSHI curriculum will also strengthen media literacy skills to evaluate health messages, consistent with grade-level expectations for Missouri schools.

Participants will evaluate the course in person and during three-month follow-up web surveys.

The project builds on the success of the pilot course Becker Library taught in October 2009.
