Enroll in Duo & maintain access to DML Resources

December 17, 2018

The Duo software,  provided by the University Information Services department, uses a process called “two-factor authentication” to ensure that Georgetown accounts are protected.

Duo enrollment is required by December 22, 2018 for anyone that has an employment relationship with Georgetown.  After the 22nd,  non-Duo users will be blocked from Georgetown accounts, including DML resource access, until enrolled.

Sunset for Legacy RefWorks

Starting in July 2018, Dahlgren Memorial Library will no longer support Legacy RefWorks.  Users that have accounts on the old Legacy platform are encouraged to transition their citations to the New RefWorks platform. New RefWorks can be exploited similarly to Legacy RefWorks and offers the ability to migrate old accounts without losing information.  Throughout the upcoming semesters, DML will be hosting workshops that will help demystify New RefWorks and ease the transition.

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Access: Update

November 16, 2016

Update: The issue has been resolved – MGUH users can access DML resources as usual.

Users connecting via the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital network have recently reported access problems connecting to DML resources. As a work around, we recommend connecting to the resources from a network other than the MGUH network (such as a data plan on a mobile device or home network). Computers located in DML are also available for research 24 hours day/7days a week. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working with the information systems departments at Georgetown and MedStar to identify a solution to this issue.

If you see an error message when connecting to DML resources please contact dmlresources@georgetown.edu.

To request DML research or reference assistance please contact dmlreference@georgetown.edu.
