New EZproxy Server Launched

As of November 7, 2007, Boston University Medical Center (BUMC) students, faculty, staff, residents, and other users who have a BU login name and Kerberos password can access licensed online resources from home or other off-campus locations through a new authentication service called EZproxy. These resources include electronic journals, textbooks, electronic indexes, and other Web-based tools. Users no longer need the VPN (though still required for wireless access) or Proxy Server to access our resources.

Wiley InterScience Journal Titles Added

We are pleased to announce that the Boston University Medical Center Alumni Medical Library and the Boston University Mugar Memorial Library have jointly purchased access to the Wiley InterScience electronic journal collection. The collection is available to all Boston University, Boston University Medical Center, and Boston Medical Center students, faculty, residents, and staff. The Wiley InterScience collection contains approximately 420 electronic journal titles and expands the Library's online holdings in the areas of medicine, dental medicine, basic sciences, public health, pharmacology, psychiatry and psychology. Access to these journals will be available through BUMC MEDLINE Plus/Ovid and PubMed, as well as through the Medical Library's E-Resources journal collection and the Subject Guides A-Z.
