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.

Travel Scholarships Available for Archives and Rare Books Collections Use

The Bernard Becker Medical Library is fortunate to have robust collections in archives and rare books that document the history of medicine from the late 15th century up to the present. Subjects in which the library’s holdings are particularly strong include ophthalmology and optics, neurology, deaf education, and the history of dentistry. In order to encourage researchers living more than 100 miles from St. Louis to use these collections, Becker Library will offer two grants annually of up to $1,000 each to help defray the costs of travel, lodging, food and photo reproductions. Covered expenses will be reimbursed at the conclusion of the visit.

Announcing Cross-Campus Access to Wiley E-Journals

Becker Medical Library and Washington University Libraries working together have successfully negotiated a license agreement with Wiley Publishing that, for the first time, allows university-wide access to all of the Wiley electronic journals subscribed to by either Becker Library or University Libraries. Students, faculty and staff on both the Danforth and Medical School campuses may now access a combined total of 490 Wiley e-journals, including archived e-journal backfiles. The joint agreement has not only expanded the resources available to both campuses but also saved money by allowing the elimination of 29 duplicate subscriptions.
