Update: Access Problem with Nature Titles

Update: Access has been restored. Please let us know if you run into any problems.

We are experiencing access problems with some titles from Nature, such as Nature Genetics and Nature Immunology among several others. Users are seeing a paywall when trying to access articles from the most recent issues. We are working with Nature to try and resolve the problem. Please report access problems to the library.

Prospector Temporarily Suspended

The Health Sciences Library is in the process of migrating to a new system. Beginning Monday, November 7, 2016, Prospector services will be temporarily suspended as part of the migration. Prospector services will be restored within the next several months. We will notify the Anschutz Medical Campus community when services resume. Please watch for updates. You will still have options for requesting materials during the Prospector downtime.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Please create an ILL (Illiad) account to place requests for books and articles held at other libraries. ILL services will be limited to academic material. ILLiad is a free service for most Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff, and students. Please visit our webpage. For questions and help with Interlibrary Loan, please contact the ILL office at copydocs@ucdenver.edu or call 303-724-2111.

Your Public Library: If you are looking for popular fiction or leisure reading, please visit your local public library. Most libraries in the metro area are members of Prospector and can help you with this service.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during our migration process! We will do our best to make the transition as smooth as possible for you. Questions? Please contact the service desk at 303-724-2152. For specific questions concerning Prospector, please contact Tami Hoegerl at 303-724-2175 or tamara.hoegerl@ucdenver.edu.

AccessPharmacy time-out problem

Have you ever been “kicked out” of AccessPharmacy or AccessAnesthesiology after being on the same page for a while? Sometimes during a session users are kicked out and can’t get past the log-in page to access full-text content. There seems to be some kind of time-out occurring. You can try the following if you encounter this problem:

  1. Try to access another database, such as Academic Search Premier, etc. from the library’s web page: http://hslibrary.ucdenver.edu/databases
  2. Try again with AccessPharmacy.
  3. Try clearing your cache or browsing history.
  4. Repeat if you encounter the log in page again.

We value your feedback regarding access problems and your suggestions for access improvement. Please let us know how we can improve access to this or any other resource: http://hslibrary.ucdenver.libanswers.com/index.php 

E-books in these databases include:

dipi9 good12 harr butt5 long2

UPDATE: NEJM Access Problem

UPDATE: We believe we have solved the access problem. If you still cannot access full text, please contact us.
