    Access to EE+ Ends Posted Thursday, December 3, 2009, 3:36 pm
    Due to budget constraints, the Library of the Health Sciences will not be renewing our subscription to Essential Evidence Plus.  Our current subscription expires at the end of December 2009.

    The library provides access to similar products, specifically: DynaMed and FirstConsult. We would like to suggest that you try DynaMed in place of Essential Evidence Plus.  DynaMed offers evidence-based information in bulleted format on a wide range of diseases and conditions, with links to references embedded within the description; calculators; and a weekly article/podcast that includes articles most likely to change clinical practice.

    Information on downloading DynaMed and/or FirstConsult  to your PDA is available on our PDA Topics page at .  If you would like more information please contact your clinical campus librarian for assistance.
