Accessing Information Resources from Off Campus
EVMS network account holders can access licensed library databases and other resources from off-campus via the EVMS proxy server. When a restricted resource is selected — e.g., StatRef or MDConsult — you will be asked for a username and password. Once these are entered, you will have full access to the database.
Please note, you must connect to these resources through the EVMS library web page in order to gain access to licensed resources.
If you have questions about these resources, please contact the Library at (757) 446-5851 or email the Information Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you have questions about your username and password, contact the Network Center at (757) 446-5871 or email them at email@example.com.
For training information, call April Pace, Education Coordinator, at

Clinical Medical Librarian Program
The Clinical Medical Librarian (CML) program extends library and information services into the clinical environment.
