Authentication issues for library resources

Due to a change in IT’s authentication, we discovered access to some electronic resources, ILL, and Digital Commons are affected. A key resource affected by this change is UpToDate. At this point, we don’t know when seamless access will successfully be moved to another system.  

UpToDate should work while on campus. Users are encouraged to create a personal UpToDate account while on campus or through Global Protect on , UNMC devices, to access the resource directly through https://www.uptodate.com/contents/search. If users currently have an active, personal UptoDate account, they should be able to access the resources from this link without interruption.  For users who cannot access Global Protect or are not on-campus, please contact our eresource troubleshooting for assistance in creating an account. At this time, Nebraska Medicine users should not be affected.  

For interlibrary loan login issues, please follow the procedures as outlined in this blog post to make requests or access your account. You can also contact interlibrary loan at illdept@unmc.edu or 402-559-7097. 

For access to DigitalCommons, please contact Heather Brown at hlbrown@unmc.edu.
