Resolving Access Issues--Try These Steps:  

  • Clear cache and cookies and try again in a new browser (New Private Window in Firefox, or Incognito Window in Chrome). You should then be prompted for the OpenAthens login menu: 


  • Try different access links:  Browzine, PubMed, or in catalog results page: "Download PDF" or "Available Online"
  • PubMed searches--enter PubMed from the TMC Library's website;  PubMed from Internet won't give full text access.
  • Page loads to PDFs can sometimes be delayed:  wait a couple minutes, or try clicking on your access link again.
  • BMC users at Texas Children's Hospital:  Use your BCM VPN not the hospital network, when accessing resources.
