OpenAthens is the authentication system used by the TMC Library. You will need to be authenticated by this system in order to access the subscription-based electronic resources.
Click on the PubMed logo on the Core Resources section of the TMC Library website or use this link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?otool=hamtmc. Accessing PubMed in this way will set up links to the TMC Library resources in the interface.
You will not immediately be prompted to sign in to OpenAthens when you access PubMed.
Next, conduct your search. Once you have found the citation for an article that you want, click on the Get Full Text @ TMC Library button in the top right corner of the page.
You will be prompted to sign in to Open Athens. You will only need to do this once per browsing session.
If you have already signed into Open Athens previously in the same browsing session (for any TMC Library resource), you will not have to sign in again.
When trying to access a database, journal or ebook, you will be presented with 1 of the 2 screens presented here.
Some resources (such as CINAHL and other EBSCO databases) present the user with this screen before selecting an institution:
If you do not see the screen above, skip to the "Choose how to sign in" screenshot below.
You will use the Find your organization side on the right.
Try searching for "Texas Medical Center Library". You should see this option appear below the search field. Click on this suggestion. This will work for almost all of the electronic resources.
