Resources

This is likely because you have a pop-up blocker installed in your Internet browser. You can correct this problem by either of the following fixes. NOTE: Using either of the options above should allow PubMed to open. If you still are unable to access PubMed, please contact us at macplus@mcmasterhkr.com.

Solution 1
  1. On the toolbar in Internet Explorer go to Tools / Internet Options and select the Privacy tab and then select Settings under the Popup Blocker area at the bottom of the screen;
  2. In the Address of website allowed field, add http://plus.mcmaster.ca/macplusfs and then press the Add button. The website should now appear under the Allowed sites section.
Solution 2
  1. Follow the instructions for (#1) in Solution 1 above then go to Notification and Filter Level and change the Filter Level from High to Medium.

If at times you search from within your university and at others from within the hospital, you will likely find that they do not have the same journal and text licenses.

Feel free to ask the institution to license evidence-based resources for any they don’t now have (you can always ask!). If you can’t get at what you want from the hospital/clinic via Clinical Connect, try switching to http://medportal.ca or http://plus.mcmaster.ca/macplusfs and vice versa.

While getting exactly the resources you want may not always be easy depending on your location, etc, ACCESSSS is set up to find the current best evidence at several levels of the 5S pyramid. So if you can’t get it from, say, UpToDate, try one of the other resources!

The link to eCPS is available on the External Links page. eCPS is available on the e-Therapeutics site (as part of the Health Science Library's subscription to e-Therapeutics).

NOTE: When accessing eCPS off campus, your LibAccess must be activated first.
