There are a few tips and tricks when it comes to accessing the library off-campus.
- Start on the Biomedical Library homepage. By starting on our homepage, you will be proxied into databases such as PubMed and Scopus and the subscriptions that we subscribe to.
- Create an account with DynaMed and UpToDate while on campus and make sure to log in on campus at least every three months to confirm that you are still affiliated with us. You can also utilize these accounts to log into the DynaMed and UpToDate apps on your phone/tablet.
- Utilize Dartmouth’s VPN Global protect. Global protect is a service that makes secure remote access to the Dartmouth network for Dartmouth faculty, staff, and students. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, there are instructions for both Mac and Windows users to help you set it up.
If you’re having trouble accessing the library when you’re off-campus, let us know by sending us an email, shooting us a message on chat, or giving us a call: 603-650-1658(Dana Library) or 603-650-7658 (Matthew’s Fuller). Remember, it’s important to us that you’re able to find what you’re looking for and that you have access to the resources that you need.
