Occasionally eResources will be accessible via non Hull /York Accounts. In these cases see:

Access Information

Different accounts provide access to various electronic resources subscribed to by the specific institution or organisation. These resources can include databases and electronic journals.

Students of HYMS degrees jointly awarded by the two universities are entitled to the accounts detailed below.

HYMS staff are entitled to the following accounts depending on their membership of the different organisations (please contact the Dean’s PA at execoffice@hyms.ac.uk if you wish to clarify this). NOTE that you do not need a library card to access eResources:

 

University of Hull account

This is provided automatically to students and to members of staff when they join the University of Hull (see Membership tab above).

University of York account

This account is provided automatically to students and to members of staff when they join the University of York (see Membership tab above).

NHS Athens account

This is provided automatically to MB BS and Physician Associate students when they join HYMS. Members of staff can apply for this account via https://openathens.nice.org.uk/ . Postgraduate students will be entitled depending on their affiliation with the local NHS.

 

N.B. It is much quicker to register for an NHS Athens account from an NHS computer either on a hospital site or in a GP practice (normally passwords will be available to use within an hour). If registering from home or university registration can take up to 2 weeks. 

 

Please note: when searching for a particular resource or subject it is advisable to access via the links provided via the tabs above.
