JAMA Online Access

May 17, 2012

UPDATE 5/23/12: All links should be working properly. Thanks for your patience.


From today (5/17/12) until next Monday (5/21/12), there may be difficulty with accessing several online journals through the American Medical Association (AMA), primarily from off-campus.

AMA has migrated their journals to a new network and we are currently updating all of the library’s databases and links. Below are several of the journals and their direct links. Please note, that you will not be able to access the below journals from off-campus because the authentication is not yet working for the new URLs. UPDATE (5/18/12): The below URLS are now working from off-campus.

Archives of Internal Medicine
Archives of Surgery
Archives of Neurology

We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any access issues, questions, or comments, please contact a DML Librarian.
