Remote Access Alert


The NMCSD Library is transitioning away from OpenAthens remote access to our library electronic resources. NMCSD OpenAthens accounts will stay active until they expire but will not be maintained. We encourage users to register for a new remote access account (EZ) by following instructions in Register for EZ Remote Access Account. EZ account will allow NMCSD staff off-campus access to all resources purchased by NMCSD, as well as BUMED and / or DHA via a single sign-on. 

Navy Medicine Electronic Library OpenAthens accounts are not affected by this change. 

Navy Medicine staff  (including NMCSD staff) can register for a Navy Electronic Library OpenAthens account that provides access to core medical resources purchased by BUMED and/or DHA, including Cinahl, ClinicalKey, ClinicalKey Nursing, DynaMed Plus, Ovid Journals, Ebooks, and Databases, PsychiatryOnline, UpToDate and more.

To register for a Navy Medicine Electronic Library OpenAthens account please click here and select Navy Medicine Electronic Library as your library.
