The Helix Library Catalog is now formatted for searching on a mobile device. You can now find out, on the run, if the library owns or has access to a particular print or electronic book or journal from the library’s mobile website http://www.unmc.edu/library/m.
The mobile version of the catalog can only be searched with keywords; hence, when searching for one world titles such as the journals Nature or Cell, all records containing those terms will appear in the results. Getting to the exact title may be cumbersome, as limiters are currently not available. If you have questions regarding library holdings, please call the Circulation Desk at 402-559-4006.
MDConsult recently announced that CME credit can be earned through Point of Care and Cyberounds. You must first create a personal account within MDConsult and be signed in to that account during the entire process in order to receive CME credit.
Point of Care CME can be earned when you access information in MDConsult. After you read the information, click the Request CME link to fill out a brief questionnaire to obtain 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ from the Cleveland Clinic Center for Continuing Education.
