The Library strongly urges everyone who has created personal accounts with our databases or publishers to update the e-mail addresses on those accounts to their new e-mail. Examples of databases where you may have a personal account include UpToDate, DynaMed, EBSCO, Web of Science, Access Medicine, the Cochrane Library, Current Protocols, EMBASE, Ovid, ScienceDirect, or PsychiatryOnline. You may have also registered on a journal website for updates from specific journals, such as those published by Wiley, Oxford, or Elsevier.

Future registrations for personal accounts from library databases should only use the new e-mail. In some cases, this is critically important for ensuring access to the correct subscriptions. It is also important for the Library’s interactions with publishers.

If you encounter questions or problems changing e-mails, please write the Library at

Effective June 1, all logins to MyNCBI will require a federated or third-party login service. Such services include Google, Facebook, Microsoft, eRA Commons, ORCiD,, and many others. Eventually, the username and password you set on the MyNCBI website will no longer work.

People using MyNCBI may be prompted with a wizard to walk them through the process of choosing a federated/third-party login.

Your MyNCBI account content (e.g., saved PubMed searches, full-text preferences, highlighting of search terms in results) is not changing, just the method to access it.

Please contact the library ( for assistance with this transition, or visit to read more.
