CSHL Online Resources


We now have more online journal subscriptions and holdings than print subscriptions.  All are in the online catalog, as well as in our journals database.   From other sites, e.g., NCBI in PubMed, you'll see our blue Find It! button, which will connect you to the full text of resources we have access to, or take you to our interlibrary loan form for resources we don't have access to.


Ebooks and lectures

We have access to an increasing number of ebooks, most with unlimited user licenses. Some have multi-user or single-user licenses.  We have access to the following:


On and Off Campus Access

Most access is based on IP range, so when you're at a computer within the Lab's IP range or connected to the Lab's network (wirelessly or via VPN), you will be taken directly to online resources we subscribe to without having to enter a username and password.  When you are outside the Lab's IP range or not connected to the Lab's network, you will be prompted to enter a user name and password in order to access our online resources.  This is the same login you use for ILLiad, our interlibrary loan system.  You need to be connected to the Lab network or be on campus when you set up your "secondary" login.


Broken Links

Links to online content appear in the catalog with the label "URL".  Some go to full-text resources, some go to more-information type pages.  Please report broken links in the online catalog and the journals database directly to me, so I can fix them :-)  Broken links on the Library's website should be reported to Tom Adams.
