The McGoogan Library of Medicine is pleased to announce the continuation of UpToDate for the 2013 fiscal year (July 2012 – June 2013). Off-campus access to UpToDate is now immediately available with this license renewal. UNMC users can access off-campus through the library’s proxy server, while Nebraska Medical Center users can access off-campus through VPN. Additionally, this off-campus access permits access to the mobile version of UpToDate via the library’s Mobile Resources page. Mobile access can also be achieved by logging into the campus secure wireless network TK-421.
Physicians can also accrue CME credit through their lookups in UpToDate. By creating and logging into a personal account within UpToDate, all lookups will be tracked and converted into CME credit.
UpToDate is generously funded by The Nebraska Medical Center and the UNMC College of Medicine. The library negotiates the license and creates the electronic infrastructure that allows users to connect seamlessly from within UpToDate’s references to the library’s online journal collection.
Usage statistics indicate UpToDate plays a valued and important role in patient care and education at The Nebrska Medical Center. This fiscal year, UpToDate has been accessed an average of 3,500 times per week by TNMC and UNMC personnel.
