The library’s subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education has been modified to no longer require a special username and password. This new institutional subscription allows seamless access on-campus and the customary UNMC authentication from off-campus. Links to the Chronicle can be located on the library’s home page through the catalog or online journals database.
The library is pleased to announce that it is now able to subscribe to the complete library of Springer Journal titles. By joining the LYRASIS consortium, a group of libraries working together to find better pricing through group negotiation, McGoogan is now able to enter into this offer. Currently the library subscribes to 15 Springer titles. This journal package contains over 1700 titles. A full title list and description of the package deal can be viewed here.
The journals will be accessible through the library home page by searching in the catalog for a journal title or by searching under the ‘online journals’ tab.
The library’s subscription to the New England Journal of Medicine has been expanded to include all of the clinical enterprise. Joining UNMC in this access are The Nebraska Medical Center and Bellevue Medical Center. This access includes current publication, as well as backfiles dating back to 1812. The New England Journal of Medicine is one of the premier journals in biomedical science and clinical practice.
Hospital employees can access the journal by navigating to the library portal for The Nebraska Medical Center at http://unmc.libguides.com/nebraskamed. Click on the TNMC Online Journals tab in the Quick Search box and search for New England Journal of Medicine.
Results will appear in the Online Journal Finder. Click on the link labeled Publisher to access the journal.
The library monitors the use patterns and cost per use of all subscribed journals. We also accept requests for new resources throughout the year and analyze these requests in the Fall to see if we can cancel high cost per use/low use items and replace them with the most highly requested resources.
Below are the changes that have come out of this year’s analysis. All new titles will be available in 2013 through the library catalog, the Online Journals A-Z list, and through the GetIt! And Check here for full text buttons. Cancelled items are only an interlibrary loan away.

The library’s Quick Links now features a link to Google Scholar. This link includes the library’s proxy server link, which allows the UNMC full-text searcher to accompany Google Scholar results. When off-campus, you must sign in with your UNMC Net ID, just as you would with other library resources.
To access this special Google Scholar link, go to the Quick Links, which are located on the right side of the library’s homepage, and scroll down to the bottom of the list. Google Scholar is listed under Helpful Tools.
Once you are logged into Google Scholar and perform a search, you will notice the UNMC eText link next to most of the results. Clicking that link will search the library’s online journal collection and retrieve a full-text link, if available. If not, an interlibrary loan can be ordered.
