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.

Please email prattlibrary@cchmc.org with any questions.

NLM will release a new NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System

The NIH will  release a new NIH Manuscript Submission (NIHMS) System in early 2020. This system is used to submit NIH funded publications to be entered into PubMedCentral as part of their open access policy using method C or D. For more information on the new release  including a video please see: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/techbull/nd19/brief/nd19_ncbi_nihms_new.html?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery 

While the basic steps (submitting, reviewing, approving) will stay the same, a new user interface will:

  • simplify the login process for returning users
  • provide contextual assistance throughout the process
  • include user-friendly options for:
    • importing article metadata
    • request corrections
    • ablilty to take over the reviewer role for stalled submissions

For more information on the NIHMS process see: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/bsd/public_access/resources.html
