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.

MATLAB-MathWorks is a high-level language and interactive environment used by engineers and scientists worldwide that enables you to perform computationally intensive tasks faster than with traditional programming languages. MATLAB applications are amenable for numerical computation with features such as, mathematical functions for linear algebra, statistics, Fourier analysis, filtering, optimization, numerical integration and solving ordinary differential equations. MATLAB provides built in graphics for data visualization, tools for creating custom plots and functions for integrating MATLAB based algorithms with external applications and languages such as C, Java, .NET, and Microsoft Excel

MATLAB is available for free on the Research Pod computers in Becker Medical Library through the Washington University's Campus-wide License for Mathworks. The MATLAB toolboxes installed on the Research Pod computers are listed below:

MATLAB                                                        Version 9.2        (R2017a)
Bioinformatics Toolbox                                  Version 4.8        (R2017a)
Curve Fitting Toolbox                                    Version 3.5.5     (R2017a)
Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox      Version 11.1      (R2017a)

Are you interested in purchasing a MATLAB license and MATLAB tool boxes? If so, check the WUSTL software licensing’s MATLAB webpage for more information. The MATLAB license year runs from July to June and license costs cannot be prorated.
