The shift to online courses and remote learning will be a unique challenge for many institutions including our own. Becker Medical Library has services and resources available to assist you with finding the information you need while off campus.
Databases, Journals and E-books
Most of Becker Library’s resources are available online, including databases, journals and e-books. To access full-text remotely you must either VPN to the School of Medicine network or use a Becker Proxy Account (see below).
Becker Proxy Accounts
Becker Library will offer temporary proxy server accounts to faculty and staff at no charge through June 30 so that people working from home will have full access to our resources. All School of Medicine faculty, staff and students can simply enter their WUSTL Key on the proxy login screen, no new set-up required.
Read by QxMD is available as a mobile app, allowing users to read full text without repeatedly entering credentials after initial setup.
Copyright and Fair Use in Online Instruction
Becker Library and Washington University Libraries have collaborated with the Office of the Vice Chancellor and General Counsel to create guidance on copyright and fair use in online instruction for faculty, instructors and students.
Online Lectures and Tutorials
Biomedical and Life Science Collection from Henry Stewart Talks
Becker Library’s subscription to the Biomedical and Life Science Collection from Henry Stewart Talks gives you access to over 2,000 specially prepared, online lectures narrated by world-leading experts.
Recorded/Live Becker REDCap Workshops
Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. Thanks to COVID-19, we have our first recorded REDCap workshop to share with you! Recordings will be shared on our new REDCap Workshop Recordings page as they become available.
Becker Library Senior Support Scientist Chris Sorensen, PhD, will lead a live virtual workshop on Longitudinal Projects and Surveys in REDCap for anyone who wants to join on Friday, March 20, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Please read our note on setting up prior to attendance.
Other Videos and Tutorials
Videos and tutorials are available on topics ranging from general help, to citation management, to authorship and scholarly publishing.
Subject Guides (LibGuides)
If you don’t already have journal articles and e-book chapters embedded on your Canvas course page, you may find a library guide a useful tool. We can create a custom guide with links to your course resources. Here are a few example guides: Resources for M1’s and M2’s, DBBS Education Resources, Geriatric Medicine Resources. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in having a guide created for your course.
