UC Libraries now offers "Click & Collect" at specific locations

Users can now access print collections held at specific UC Libraries locations using Click & Collect. You can put books on hold but you must go to the specific library to pick up your books. Health Sciences Library (Donaldson) and Walter C. Langsam Library are two of several libraries in the system that now offer this service.

Please note: OhioLINK is still closed so you cannot have books delivered to the Pratt Library at this time.

See original post: Click & Collect post: https://libraries.uc.edu/about/covid-19.html

'New' PubMed to replace 'Legacy' PubMed on or around May 18th

Around May 18, 2020 (possibly a little sooner) 'New' PubMed with be the default website. A yellow banner will be seen on 'Legacy' PubMed alerting users to the change. While all the the same great features from the legacy version are in 'New' PubMed the way to get to them has changed. Our understanding is that 'Legacy' PubMed will be around for several months until they shut down this website. Rest assured everything in your My NCBI account e.g. My Bibliography and SciENcv will move over to 'New' PubMed without having to do anything.
Sign up for a training in ELM! We will use Skype:
1. Thursday, April 23 from 10-11:30

Pratt Library Remote Access Work Guide

Many of us are working remotely for the first time or for more often than usual. Pratt Library is here to support you and we want to share some best practices for how to access library resources based on the method you use for remote access.

Access Pratt Resources
Access via the link (https://prattlibrary.cchmc.org/) or at the bottom of any Centerlink page under Just the Facts while onsite or using VPN access.

Full access to Pratt Subscription databases, books, journal articles, and much more through licenses exclusively for Children’s is available when connected to our secure network on-site OR off-campus through VPN access (search VPN in Centerlink) once you request authorization. If you are accessing using the Extranet you will not be able to access many Pratt Library resources. Please go directly to UC Libraries to access library resources.

Access UC Resources
Employees have access to many resources from the University of Cincinnati. Instructions for logging into and using UC resources can be found here: http://libguides.cchmc.org/discovery/Summon

EXTRANET Access – for best experiences please access the extranet from one web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) and UC Libraries in a different browser (e.g. Chrome) to minimize error messages and for faster response time when loading library resources.
