Access to Library Resources & Other Technical Issues

The guide covers key information on how to access Library information resources on and off campus

New England Journal of Medicine - Interactive Medical Cases

Publishers don't always set things up to make it easy for institutional subscribers to access their materials. This is one of those times. If you want to access the interactive medical cases from the NEJM, please watch the video or written directions.

Written Directions:

Step 1: Access NEJM from the library URL.

Step 2: Create a personal account on the NEJM site. This account is not associated with DMU in any way.

Step 3: Log off from your personal account. Clear the cookies from your browser.  

Step 4: Access NEJM directly  - not from the library

Step 5: Sign in to your personal account 

You should now be ae able to view the clinical cases.

Problems Logging in?

The authentication/login for library resources is slightly different from the login you use when accessing D2L, etc.  Enter the text prior to the @ sign for your email, as in the example below. Your password is the same.

Ebsco and Cookies

Having trouble accessing an Ebsco product?  Please click on this link:

http://search.ebscohost.com/testauth.aspx

Then, click “Remove EBSCOhost Authentication Cookie”. Close the browser and try to access the resource again.

This diagnostic tool is helpful when troubleshooting EBSCO products to  ensure that any "hidden" EBSCO sessions are closed, in addition to clearing out the EBSCO cookies hidden in your browser.
