4. Accessing Locked Standards

Locked Standards: Request Access:

For standards that require unlocking the standard is available but will need to be purchased by your department. Users should be certain the standard is required prior to requesting. The cost of unlocking the standard will be displayed and this cost will be charged to your cost centre.

  • A confirmation request email from the delegated signatory for your cost centre must be emailed to the library before the standard can be unlocked. This in-line with Barwon Health purchasing procedures.

Click on "Request Access" and the Unlock Request screen will appear. Enter your name, email address, daytime contact number and a purchase order number or requisition number to facilitate payment for the standard.

Once completed, click Submit Form. The account administrator will review your request and if approved, unlock the standard. If you have correctly entered your email address you will receive a confirmation email once the standard has been unlocked
