[10/7/2019] AccessMedicine and AccessAnestheseiology e-Book access issues
There is currently an issue with the McGraw-Hill Access collections whereby some users are not being recognised as ANZCA members when they attempt to authenticate within the IP range of another institution that also subscribes to McGraw-Hill e-books. This results in the user not being properly authenticated and being unable to access certain e-books. 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.
Creating a MyAccess account:
ANZCA users requiring urgent access can submit chapter request/s via the Request an article service.
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 box). Once created, just log into using the link in the top-right of screen.
Note: This does not apply to journal article PDFs.
User profiles can be used to download book chapter PDFs, save searches, create alerts and enable mobile access for the ClinicalKey app.
