Pilot project extends access to electronic resources across UCL Partners to end of 2011

A pilot programme has been jointly established between Academic Health Science Centres (including UCL Partners) and key science, technology and medicine publishers, co-ordinated by JISC Collections (the UK academic community e-content procurement and negotiation service).
The pilot allows universities at the centre of AHSCs to extend access to selected subscribed content for their partner NHS organisations. The pilot is running until the end of 2011 in the first instance.

Access is available for all staff of Great Ormond Street to the following UCL subscribed resources to the end of 2011 in the first instance:

• ca. 60 Nature Publishing Group journals
• ca. 250 Adis and Lippincott journals via OVID Online
• Several hundred journals and the Scopus database from Elsevier (ScienceDirect)
• ca. 1,900 SpringerLink journals
• Thomson-Reuters Web of Knowledge databases, including Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports and BIOSIS Previews, as well as EndNote Web

NHS Athens accounts are required to access these resources. Please note that users with a UCL username and password have access to these resources already through UCL.

All resources can be accessed from MyAthens at www.openathens.net – select Login to MyAthens and go to the Local resources tab to see the links to the resources

The journals can additionally be accessed directly at www.library.nhs.uk/booksandjournals/journals – click on Login now and enter your NHS Athens username and password to access the subscribed content.

If you have any comments about the pilot and for advice and support on using these resources please contact Grazia Manzotti at g.manzotti@ucl.ac.uk

Both GOSH encrypted sticks now working on the e-access machines

The problem has now been resolved by UCL ISD and GOSH staff can use both encrypted sticks in order to download UCL ejournals articles
