[10 February 2019] We are currently experiencing an issue with ClinicalKey e-books whereby the contents listings for titles are not displaying, thereby making certain chapters inaccessible. The issue has been reported to the vendor and we hope to have a solution soon.
UPDATED 12/2/19: The issue with ClinicalKey has now been RESOLVED. If you are still experiencing issues, please contact email@example.com.
[28/11/2018] Taylor & Francis e-Books:
Access issues resolved. It is recommended that users empty their browser cache, and close and reopen their browser, before attempting to access again.
[27/8/2018] AccessMedicine and AccessAnestheseiology:
Some users are experiencing access issues with titles from the above e-book collections.
The issue is preventing users from successfully authenticating as ANZCA members when they are within the IP range of any institution that also subscribes to McGraw Hill e-books. This results in the user only ever being authenticated as a user of that institution - and not ANZCA. We are continuing to work with the vendor to resolve this issue and will keep you updated on any progress.
Workarounds: Access to the above collections should be unaffected when accessed outside the IP range of the affected institutions. This includes access from home and access from a mobile device using 4G (and not the institutions' Wi-Fi). Users with a pre-existing MyAccess login, can sign out of the affected collections, and sign in using their MyAccess credentials.
Users requiring urgent access can submit a chapter request/s via Request an article service.
