How do I access the available online content: journal articles, e-books and databases?

If we have purchased a subscription to the content, you can access the online content in the following ways:

1. Via a desktop PC a Erasmus MC or EUR.

2. Log in to the wireless network within Erasmus MC:
* Employees: use your Erasmus MC account (with microsection number and password).
* Students: use Eduroam (questions and/or problems EduRoam: contact the ICT department) or Hotspot and then log in via the EZproxy-server.

3. Use MyWorkstation ( MijnWerkplek) of the Erasmus MC. (More information on the Erasmus MC intranet).

4. Log in via the proxyserver (SURFconext):
* Employees: use your Erasmus MC account (microsection number and password).
* Students: use Erasmus Universeit Rotterdam and log in with your ERNA-account.

People without microsection number or ERNA ID (i.e. who do not work or study at Erasmus MC) cannot use the online content within Erasmus MC. For this you can go to the University Library of the EUR.

Can I borrow books from the University Library, ISS or Rotterdamsch Leeskabinet?

As of December 2017, the Medical Library no longer has a physical collection. You can search for e-books in the online Catalog (click hier to search for e-books via the catalog or click hier for an overview of topics)

Erasmus MC / EUR students can borrow books with their EUR student card from the University Library, Rotterdamsch Leeskabinet or ISS. For more information, see the University Library website.

Erasmus MC employees can borrow books from the University Library, Rotterdamsch Leeskabinet or ISS after they have requested a library card from the University Library.

Why can’t I access an e-book?

From a PC in the Erasmus MC

1. We have not purchased the e-book. All our e-books are in the online catalog. When we have access, you will see this:

If we should have access according to the catalog, you can send an e-mail to the Acquisition department (acquisitie.mbib@erasmusmc.nl) with the title of the e-book.

2. Het e-book laadt niet in de browser. Vooral boeken bij EBSCOhost laden niet altijd goed in Internet Explorer. In dit geval kunt u een andere browser (Firefox, Chrome) gebruiken.

From another workplace/laptop

1. Log in to the Erasmus MC network via My Erasmus MC workstation or via the  proxyserver.

2. We have not purchased the e-book. All our e-books are in the online catalog. When we have access, you will see this:

If we should have access according to the catalog, you can send an e-mail to the Acquisition department (acquisitie.mbib@erasmusmc.nl) with the title of the e-book.

The e-book does not load in the browser. Especially books at EBSCOhost do not always load properly in Internet Explorer. In this case you can use another browser (Firefox, Chrome).
