Site licenses

Blood Online is pleased to provide site licenses. Single-site licenses allow authorized users at one geographical site (see below) online access to Blood through the use of the institution's IP addresses. Authorized users at the site are employees, faculty, staff, and students officially associated with the institution, as well as patrons of the institution's library facilities. Access via proxy server is permissible for authorized users. Authenticated and authorized users affiliated with the one subscribing location may access Blood Online from remote sites (e.g., through dial-in, telnet, etc.). Access via open proxy server is prohibited.

Institutions that purchase a multi-site license may also purchase one archival print subscription at a discount rate. Multi-site licenses can be purchased directly from the publisher or via subscription agents. The multi-site license agreement must be accepted before the activation process can be completed. To request a quote for a multi-site license, please email the Blood Subscriptions Office.

About IP Addresses


An IP address is the numeric address of a computer connected to the Internet. The IP address is sometimes also known as the Internet address. On most networks, each computer has its own IP address. An IP address is not the same as a domain name or an email address. To see the IP address of the computer you are using right now, look at the bottom of the feedback page.

To activate your subscription to Blood, you will need to give us those IP addresses which both uniquely identify the eligible machines on your network and allow access only to authorized users of your subscription. All IP addresses contain 4 numeric segments, separated by periods. A segment is either a number, an asterisk (wildcard), or a range specified by a dash (-). See example below.

Please make sure you've correctly identified ALL needed IP addresses. Those using addresses not registered will not have access to Blood.

Some institutions use proxy servers  to network their environment. This means that all the IP addresses of the computers people are using appear to our server as a single IP address.
