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 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.

FirstConsult now has an iPhone/Touch/Pad app

FirstConsult, a point-of-care clinical tool, recently released an app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. The app downloads the FirstConsult information, making use easier when you do not have a network connection.

Currently, the app is available for free trial; however, with the McGoogan Library subscription, UNMC faculty, staff, and students can maintain access beyond the trial. For that sustained access, please follow these directions:

  1. If you do not already have an MDConsult personal account, log into MDConsult from a desktop or laptop computer and create one. The registration link is located near the upper right hand corner of the page. With this account, you can also access the mobile web version of MDConsult.
  2. With your MDConsult username and password, access the App Store on your device, search for FirstConsult, and download the app.
  3. The first time you access the app, you will be asked whether or not you have an account. Click the account option and log in with your MDConsult username and password.
  4. Please allow up to 30 minutes for the content to download on to your device. Subsequent updates will not take as long and you will be notified of them as you would your other app updates.
  5. Please note that in order for your MDConsult account to remain active, you must log into the account via the library’s website on a desktop or laptop computer at least once every three months.

Helix Library Catalog now mobile

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

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.
