  • Access Medicine  access to more than 60 medical titles, thousands of images and illustrations, interactive self-assessment, case files, diagnostic tools, and the ability to download content to a mobile device.
  • ClinicalKey — an A-Z list of books in ClinicalKey
  • SpringerLink  — Provides researchers with access to millions of scientific documents from journals, books, series, protocols and reference works. You will need to register for an account; this will allow you only the content that is available to OU Athens.The two sections of Springerlink of most relevance to diabetes research are:

Limiting by Material Type in the ALICE Catalog

The screenshot below illustrates how to search our ALICE Catalog and then limit the results to particular formats of materials. You can, of course, use other limiters such as Language or Year. Searching ALICE for e-Books should allow you to find titles in all of the collections listed above, and other sources as well, all at one time.Sample screen of searching ALICE and limiting to material types

A note about e-Books in OhioLINK: If you search the OhioLINK Catalog (second tab above), you will probably find e-Books listed there that are not listed in ALICE. Due to licensing restrictions on e-Books, in most cases you will not be able to "borrow" them from the other libraries like you can printed books. All e-Books that Ohio University has access rights to are listed in our ALICE Catalog.
