What is happening?

IMPORTANT: Upcoming Changes to Library Resource Access

  • DHA is migrating computers to Med-COI.
  • This impacts how the library resource providers authenticate our access.
  • Because we have content providers who cannot accommodate the number of accounts (the Med-COI Fact Sheet estimates 116,172 active users), we are implementing a short-term solution while attempting to address the long-term issue.
  • This solution involves library users accessing a Darnall Medical Library App via Application Virtualization Hosting Environment (AVHE).
  • WRNMMC personnel with EZproxy accounts can still access content using their EZproxy login.
  • After testing, we will transition to the interim AVHE access method.
  • Library staff and the DHA Global Service Center (GSC) will be able to assist.
