Access and Browser Requirements

Books may be accessed directly from links in the MARC records that have been loaded into the catalog of a purchasing institution. These records contain stable URLs that represent the most reliable way to reach the material at our site. If a subscribing institution has an access system that requires that URLs be rewritten, such as for proxy service, statistics tabulation, etc., that institution will need to make those local modifications to the URLs as system access requires.

OpenURL Compliance

BAR is OpenURL compliant on the title level, but not on the chapter and page level. In order to offer the most stable link to an individual title, you may use the title's DOI, which can be found in the book’s catalog record, and on the title record page of each book, located beneath the Subject(s).

The DOI may be used to link to a title in the BAR collection on syllabi and course packs or on learning management systems such as Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas and D2L.

ADA Compliance and Accessibility

If you have any further questions or need to request an accessible copy of a title, please email fulcrum-info@umich.edu.

Printing and Downloading

Since most material on this site is licensed for online electronic distribution only, this means that users are restricted to printing a chapter or chapters for personal research use. If, as an instructor, you want to use material in a course, you can provide the Citable Link permanent URL on the title record page. If you want to photocopy a chapter for your course, you must apply directly to the original publisher, BAR Publishingat info@barpublishing.com. If in doubt, or for further information, see our section on fair use.

To download a chapter, go to the chapter/section headings listed under the “Table of Contents” tab . The “Read” button will take you into the e-reader; clicking on the book page. Clicking on the “Download” button next to a chapter generates a PDF of the chapter.

Do not distribute the download link — BAR titles can be accessed by users in a variety of ways, which impacts the URL generated.

MARC Records

MARC records are available free to subscribers and can be downloaded from https://umich.box.com/v/barpublishing-marc.

...

Subscribers may share the BAR bibliographic records and metadata with third-party, not-for-profit databases as well as other service developers and providers working to make this data more broadly accessible as long as the records are not being resold by any party.

Titles/MARC Records Removed

Since BAR went live in March April 2020, 0 titles have been removed from the collection. 

Usage Statistics (Stats)

Institutional subscribers can access their stats for our new platform, Fulcrum, at https://fulcrum.org/counter_reportsThis requires no login; it uses IP authentication to identify the requesting institution. You may need to alter the previous link to a proxied URL in order to be IP-authenticated to the reporting system.

For the proxy service to take effect, users at your campus or institution need to access the service via a connection through the proxy server, not directly. Your proxy server administrator can provide you with a proper URL for linking to our service; ensure that your users are entering via that URL.

IP Address Updates

If you would like to add an IP address to your authorized range (or remove one), please send us your update request by contacting bar-support@umich.edu, and the data will be forwarded to our technical support team. We will send a confirmation when the update has been made. Please note there is no separate log-in allowing subscribers to independently enter updates.
