DynaMed access code usable on multiple devices


The access code used to download DynaMed to your mobile device can now be used on up to five mobile devices. For example, if you have registered DynaMed on your iPhone or Android phone, you can install it to your iPad using the same code.

The maintenance of switching/adding devices is handled through the My Account page on Skyscape.  If you want to have the product installed on a sixth device, you will need to deactivate the subscription from one of the other five devices. You are able to do this from the My Account page.

If you have not yet installed DynaMed on your mobile device, please contact the Reference Desk at 402-559-6221 or to request your code.
