To access content in the eLibrary you need to log in with your ESCMID member or user credentials. If you haven’t registered as an ESCMID member yet, then click here to do so – or use this link to register as a user.
The most recent event-related content is usually restricted to ESCMID members, while registered users get access one year after the event. However, there are events such as ECCMID where attendees get priority access, no matter if they are members or registered users. In these cases, we may offer non-attendees access after paying a fee.
You may search by event name, session title or number, topic title or number or author – or by any keyword. To get the most relevant results, enter the title or name in quotation marks, e.g. "Pre-ECCMID Day on Diagnostics" or "John Doe". If no quotation marks are used, then the exact result is shown first, followed by less exact results.
You may further narrow the number of search results for most terms by applying one or several filters, using the filter window on the start page. The Category and Media Type filters work for any content. In contrast, the Date from / to filter may not apply for Publications and Guidelines. In addition, the information text below a webcast or document offers the option of filtering search results by session title, author, event or category.
Linking two or more search terms by AND will show all results containing these search terms. For example, if you are looking for results that contain both the terms viral and hospital, then enter viral AND hospital.
Link two or more search terms by OR to get all results that contain at least one of these terms. For example, if you want to get results that contain either viral or infections or COVID, then enter viral OR infections OR COVID.
Place + in front of the term that you want to be included in your search result and place - in front of the term that you do not want to be included – without blanks in between in either case. For example, if you are aiming for search results that contain viral and infection but do not contain COVID, then enter +viral +infections -COVID.
Deselect the ticked boxes in the filter dropdowns, click "Clear" on the calendars in the Date from / to filter – or refresh the website to remove all filters at once. Additionally, you may clear all applied filters by using the relevant buttons right above the search results.
