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.

Suggestion for Purchase

The Library welcomes recommendations for additions to its collection. A member of the Collection Management staff will evaluate your request.

The criteria for purchasing items is based on:

  • the suitability of the topic in meeting the teaching, patient care, and research needs of the faculty, staff, and students
  • budget constraints
  • availability (whether or not the item is in print or in the requested format)
  • electronic access considerations (some items may be unavailable as a single purchase)

Faculty members are encouraged to request the purchase of required and suggested textbooks and books for student class work for course reserves.

Duplicate copies of journals are not purchased. Duplicate copies of print books are purchased only if the title is very heavily used and an eBook version is not available.

Missing/lost/damaged books are not automatically replaced, even when the library is reimbursed for these items. The decision to replace an item is based on use, subject matter and relevance to the needs of faculty and students, date, cost, and availability
