We have now successfully set up alternative access to a large number of Oxford University Press (OUP) e-books that we used to have access to on the Dawsonera e-books platform. In addition to the Oxford Handbook series of titles which we blogged about earlier this week, we now also have the following OUP titles available in our E-Books Collection once again:

All of our e-books, both the ones above and the thousands of others that we have, are all accessible via our online catalogue – http://bmaopac.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/F

We have now removed all of the Dawsonera e-books from our online catalogue.

When you now search for e-books on our online catalogue you will only see one’s that are working. These are all of the titles that we have access to on other e-book platforms, including our current trial access to Clinical Key.

We are continuing to work with other e-book providers on getting alternative access set up to the titles that we had access to on Dawsonera. As we hope you can appreciate, this process is taking some time as we are having to negotiate brand new access agreements.

As we start to get access to sets of titles we will add these into our online catalogue, and we will also post regular updates to this blog on our progress with this endeavour.

We really appreciate your understanding and patience while we work as quickly as we can to get alternative access set up to the e-books that you have been used to accessing on the Dawsonera platform via our service.

LATEST UPDATE: The trial access has been further extended and is now available through the month of October too.

We have managed to secure trial access to Clinical Key for BMA members.

Clinical Key provides access to the full text of the latest editions of hundreds of medical e-books published by Elsevier.

Clinical Key also provides full text access to a large number of e-journals and other key online medical resources produced by Elsevier.

Please use the following link for direct access to the trial:
https://www-clinicalkey-com.authproxy.bma.org.uk

All of the Elsevier e-books that we previously had access to on Dawsonera have now had their linking updated in our online catalogue to connect directly with the version available on Clinical Key.

If you have any queries about our trial access to Clinical Key please email: e-books@bma.org.uk

About half of all of our e-books (approx. 1,400) are hosted on the Dawsonera platform.
Bertram Books, the owner of Dawsonera, went into administration on 19th June.
The administrators have indicated that they will switch off the Dawsonera platform on Friday 31st July.
When this happens the access to our e-books on the Dawsonera platform will stop working.

We are in the process of getting access set up to the affected titles on several other e-book platforms.
As access is successfully set up on each of the new platforms sets of titles will once again become available to access via our online catalogue.

Please visit our blog (bmalibrary.blog) for the latest updates on our progress.
