Notice for Ovid Account Users

Fee-based Ovid accounts will be discontinued as of July 1, 2018. A new method of access, IP authentication, will be instituted. This access requires user’s devices to be on the WUSM network. A login/password will no longer be required and Ovid usage will be free of charge.

For off campus access, a user must be a Washington University School of Medicine faculty or staff member, or student, and must have a Remote Access Account.

Washington University School of Medicine faculty, staff, and students who wish to transfer existing saved searches from their current Ovid account must create a new free personal account after July 1, 2018. Please contact Becker Librarian Denise Hannibal for help with this transaction.

All current non-Washington University School of Medicine accounts will be closed. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you.
