Published: 10 Jun 2013

Changes as of July 1, 2013

As of July 1st, 2013, access to McGill electronic databases, e-journals and other e-resources has changed at McGill affiliated hospital sites in order to comply with the McGill University Library's licensing agreements.  Access to these electronic resources now  depends on your status; only persons affiliated with the University can  access these services.

  • If you are affiliated with McGill University as a faculty or staff member, or as a resident or student, you will continue to have access to the full range of McGill University Library e-resources. However, beginning July 1st, 2013:
  • If you are not affiliated with McGill University as a faculty or staff member, or as a resident or student, please note that you are not authorized to access McGill Library e-resources, as per the licensing agreements with the vendors. Therefore, beginning July 1, you will no longer be able to access them. However, as is currently the case:
    • You may request McGill materials via the hospital’s inter-library loan service.
    • You also have access to the e-resources licensed for use by the hospital and/or your unit.

For more details, see the list of Frequently Asked Questions.

To learn more about the resources available to you, please contact your hospital librarian or the McGill Life Sciences Library.
