Doing Research Over the Holidays? Consider Off-site Access to the Library’s Resources

The Library will be closed and library staff will be unavailable during the Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years’ holidays but that doesn’t mean you can’t access the library and its resources. As always, the physical library will be accessible to clinical staff via their badges on a 24/7 basis. Off-site, online access to many of the library’s resources is also available, read on to find out how!

Physicians: If you are a Huntington Hospital affiliated physician you are able to access the library’s resources from your Citrix or CONNECT log in. See our Physicians Off-Site Access page to learn how. If you would prefer to have username/password access to a resource, please submit an Off-Site Access Resource Form or contact the library directly during business hours.

Hospital Staff: All other hospital staff, please fill out our Off-Site Access Request Form to be set up with access to selected library resources. Please allow 1 business day for account set up.

Resources for which off-site access is available include:

· OvidSP/Nursing@Ovid –includes access to Medline, Evidence Based Medicine Review databases, Johanna Briggs Institute, Nursing@Ovid, HMH Full Text Journals and Books@Ovid databases.

· Gale Databases – includes Health Reference Center Academic, Health & Wellness Resource Center (consumer health information) & Gale Virtual Reference Library (consumer health reference ebooks)

· Natural Standard – evidence-based information on complementary and alternative medicine products and techniques, such as herbs and supplements or acupuncture and yoga, for consumers and professionals.

· Refworks – a online research management, collaboration and writing tool to help you gather, organize, store and share research

For off-site access to MDConsult, please sign up on a hospital-networked computer by going to MDConsult and clicking on the “Create Account” link at the top right of the MDConsult home screen (must be on a hospital computer).
