IMPORTANT NOTE: Universities offer access to e-resources for clinical instructors.  If you have an affiliation with a university, you may be eligible for access to the resources offered by the university library.  To obtain an account, you will need to contact the university’s clinical teaching program coordinator (may be for a faculty or for a school).  University libraries can provide details on how to connect to e-resources remotely and information on obtaining accounts.  For example, here is the McGill Library page on accessing e-resources and the Université de Montréal’s Accès hors campus aux ressources électroniques (Proxy).
