E-Databases for Medicine and Health Sciences


​​​​​​​IMPORT​​​ANT: On-campus use of subscription e-resources with or without Inetkey​​

Although the ​​​​Library's subscription e-resources are still available free of charge on-campus, opening the Inetkey will download their web pages faster. Due to many add-ons such as adverts, Google Analytics, etc. which come as a given with web pages nowadays and over which the Library has no control, the page will download slower with the Inetkey closed.​   Do note that on-campus, even with your Inetkey open, you won't be charged for the subscription e-resource's base URL, only for the add-ons to the web page.
