Changes in access to OGEL

The providers of OGEL have introduced an extra step in the access route to full text materials.

In any search session, the first time an article is selected to download you will be asked to supply your University of Aberdeen email address (in order to identify yourself). A message is sent to your email address containing a link back to OGEL – follow this link to complete the download. You need to do this only once per search session. Access is lost when OGEL is closed or the web browser shut down.

It is important to select and evaluate before downloading content from a database and resist any tempatation to mass download articles. This type of activity is viewed by vendors as unacceptable.
