The Scholarly Kitchen has a good article on mobile access to journals. Many of you read JAWRA on a university or institutional subscription. Typically, this works fine as long as you are on campus and accessing JAWRA via the university’s network. The Wiley Library identifies your IP address as a subscriber, and all the locks open.
But, what happens when you’re off campus, say at a meeting, and you need to look up an article? The hotel’s network won’t be recognized as a subscriber. The same goes if you try to access JAWRA via your mobile phone — don’t laugh, that capability is coming down the pike.
The Scholarly Kitchen’s article doesn’t mention it, but JAWRA readers have another option: Become a member of AWRA! AWRA members get complete online access to JAWRA via their user name and password, any time, anywhere. Carry your virtual library wherever you go!
