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.

Off-Campus Access is changing!

On August 26, the Health Sciences Library will be making changes to our off-campus proxy system so that you can now log in with your PassportID (this is the same username and password you use for other University resources – like o365 email and the UCDAccess Portal).

Why are we making this change?
Login via PassportID is more secure for you, the user. It will also be far easier for the library to manage. Just one example: in the past there has been a slight delay of up to a week before new students and employees were able to have access to off campus resources. That delay will now disappear.

Here is a screenshot of the new login page that will be in place starting 8 am, Aug. 26 2015 (click to enlarge):

There will be some exceptions:

  • University of Colorado Hospital employees will still need to log in the old way, using their username of:  letter H followed by their UCH employee ID number (eg: Hxxxxxx). Password is user’s last name.
  • Volunteer Clinical Faculty (VCF program) will continue to log in with their assigned ID number as user name and last name as password.

Prefer the old way?

  • As this is a “soft launch” , the old way of logging in will still work for a limited time only: user name as employee ID number, and last name as password.
  • However, if you had a web browser automatically enter your login and password, you will need to clear out the saved password.  If you have any trouble with this, please call our library Service Desk for directions on clearing saved password from various browsers.

 

Difficulty logging in?  Please contact the HSL Service Desk at 303-724-2152 or use Ask Us.

Article Linker problem from PubMed

Currently there is an intermittent problem with Article Linker on PubMed. Users may see the following message: “PubMed look up service is temporarily unavailable.” If you encounter the error please keep trying. You can try your search via Google Scholar.

You might also try the following:

1) open two browser windows, one on PubMed and the other on Find Journals single citation matcher or title search

2) flip back and forth between the windows or tabs, copy and paste the relevant info for the full text you wish to look up

If you have questions, please contact Ask a Librarian

Updated: Personal account access problem in Ovid

Update: the problem should now be resolved.Please contact the library if you encounter further problems.

Users have been unable to log in to their personal accounts in Ovid recently because the link for the personal accounts is not appearing.  Additionally, “Logged in as uchs9901” appears in the upper right corner. We are working with Ovid to correct the problem as quickly as possible.

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:
