SciFinder Scholar now mobile

SciFinder Scholar, a database that searches Chemical Abstracts and MEDLINE simultaneously, now has a site optimized for mobile devices. SciFinder has always required registration, so if you already have a username and password, it will work for the mobile site. If you don’t and would like to search SciFinder, either from a desktop computer or mobile device, please register.

You can access the mobile site, but only from a mobile device, at https://scifinder.cas.org/mobile or simply scan this QR Code from your phone. A link to this resource is also included on the resource page of the library’s mobile website.

Renew your Clinical Pharmacology Mobile code

If you currently use Clinical Pharmacology mobile on your smartphone, it is time to renew your access code. Codes expire each February, so to continue access, you must obtain a new code. Contact the Reference Desk at 402-559-6221 or email askus@unmc.edu for the codes. Please note that the Reference Desk is staffed Monday – Friday, 8a-5p.

Clinical Pharmacology is available to all faculty, students, and staff of UNMC and to employees and physicians at The Nebraska Medical Center.

For information on Clinical Pharmacology Mobile and more mobile resources, please see our Mobile Library Resources website for apps and web accessible resources.

Check study room availability on-the-go

Not in the library, but want to know if a study room is available? Now you can check availability through the library’s mobile website.

The site takes you to a live listing of study room keys in our catalog. If a study room is available, it will be indicated as “Available” in the Call# column.

Please note that there is no guarantee of availability or access to a specific room. This page is live and a room may not be available by the time you arrive in the library and “due date” times may not indicate future availability, as rooms can be renewed.

Rooms are only available to UNMC faculty, students, and staff.

eMedicine access changes and new mobile app

Access to eMedicine has changed. eMedicine had previously been available free to the individual who registers, but libraries and institutions had been able to link seamlessly to the resource without user registration. Now, eMedicine content will be merged with Medscape, which also includes news and drug information. The seamless institutional access is now no longer available. To access eMedicine, one must create a personal username and password, which is free. If you previously had an account for CME purposes, it should still be valid.

A free mobile version of this resource is also available through iPhone and Blackberry apps. An Android app is in development.
