Want to refine a result list to show just e-books? Then simply select the eBook option in the Item Format section of the left sidebar:
The discovery service collapses all the different editions and formats (print and e-book) into a grouped or representative record.
Be default, the record displayed is usually for the most recently held item.
Different (older) editions and print holdings can be accessed in several different ways:
User profiles can be used to download book chapter PDFs, save searches, create alerts and enable mobile access for the ClinicalKey app.
It is possible to download most book chapters within ClinicalKey to read offline.
In order to download PDFs, you will need to create a separate ClinicalKey user profile [personal account] (see separate section). Once created, just log into using the link in the top-right of screen.
Note: This does not apply to journal article PDFs.
Article access issues: Some users are experiencing ongoing issues with accessing articles via the library discovery service. This is due to HSTS redirection issues on external servers and is manifesting as privacy errors preventing the user from properly authenticating.
JoM/Minerva access issues: There are ongoing remote access issues with Journal of Opioid Management and the Minerva Anestiologica. Articles from these journals can be supplied via the library's Request an article service.
iology e-Book access issues
There is an ongoing issue with McGraw-Hill (MGH) Access e-books whereby some users are not being recognised as ANZCA users when they attempt to authenticate within the IP range of another institution that also subscribes to MGH e-books. This results in the user not being properly authenticated and being unable to access certain e-books.
Access to the above collections should be unaffected when authenticated outside the IP range of the affected institutions. This includes access from home and access from a mobile device using 4/5G (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.
Creating a MyAccess account:
ANZCA users requiring urgent access can submit chapter request/s via the Request an article service.
