Most of the ebooks listed in the Catalog and the Becker Medical Library Catalog are available to all WU users on or off campus, but there are some exceptions.

  • In Becker Medical Library catalog, when you see "Access restricted to WUSM" after the link, you will probably need to be on the medical campus to access the book. The same book (in paper or ebook) may be listed in the Catalog, so it's wise to double check. Off-campus access to "restricted to WUSM" titles is available via Becker proxy accounts. More information about Becker Medical Library Proxy Server accounts.
  • Links on Becker library pages include the medical campus proxy prepend [].  If you are not on the medical campus or do not have a Becker Proxy account, copy the link without the prepend [it will usually be listed at the top of the page] into Create Proxied Links form and try that.  Most will work unless the eresource is licensed for medical-campus-only.
  • Some ebooks, from both campus libraries, limit the number of people who can use them at the same time.
