In July 2013, in an effort to comply with McGill University Library's licensing agreements for electronic content, the McGill Library began a process of analyzing McGill user and affiliated accounts. Members of the McGill community (i.e. faculty or staff member, medical resident or student) continue to have access to the full range of electronic databases, e-journals and other e-resources. Ineligible users (not currently a faculty or staff member, medical resident or student) were no longer given access to these services.
