Health Sciences Library Updates

Updates and information regarding Health Sciences Library services and resources for College of Medicine Students, Faculty, and Staff.

Continuous Access to UpToDate


In an effort to ensure all clinicians have uninterrupted access to UpToDate during the coronavirus pandemic, UpToDate has temporarily extended the re-verification period from 90 to 180 days, effective immediately. This means you will have UpToDate access even if you can’t re-verify with your subscribing institution. Please contact UpToDate customer service if you have any questions.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!
