Access to journals from Lippincott for employees with part-time position at the faculty

Helse Bergen and UiB has had separate agreements to Lippincott journals. Helse Bergen had their assets through an agreement made by the Health Libary, which was completed in January 2016. OVID has stricker access for Helse-Bergen as an institution, which means that even users With UiB usernames and passwords can not grasp the articles if they are conected to Helse-Bergens network. We’re sorry for this situation that makes it harder to get access for Our users. This access issue is national. The University libraries at the UiB, UiO, NTNU and UiT work closely with the Health Library for negotiations with OVID. The negotiations that are taking place are complicated, but we are seeing signs that we can come to an agreement for 2017 and beyond.

To gain access to these journals today, you can do this:
Users with emplyment at UiB have a username and password to the network connecting to UiB

  • If you are in the University’s premises you should have online access
  • If you are in Helse-Bergen’s premises you won’t get online access
  • For Remote access from home you can use the University Library’s Proxy or VPN for more information, click here: http://www.uib.no/en/ub/79506/using-private-computer. Notice that the Proxy/VPN does not work while in the University’s or Helse- Bergen’s premises.

We welcome article orders:

  • via email ubbmed@uw.uib.no
