Site access to UpToDate has been cancelled, effective October 1, 2014.

This year NYM was faced with a major price increase for UpToDate. The tremendous increase in cost is not sustainable to the Hospital, and therefore onsite access has been cancelled.

If you have a personal UpToDate account, log in here.

As an alternative to UpToDate, use these library resources:

If you decide to use the Internet:
  • Consider the source! Who wrote the information? When was it updated? Can you trust that the content is accurate and unbiased? Learn more here.
  • Restrict your Google search to educational web sites. Type site:edu into the search box with your search terms.
  • Use Google Scholar to restrict your search to journal articles or books.

Please contact the Health Sciences Library for additional support. We will locate journal articles and textbooks to assist you.
