HSLS Databases…There’s an App for That!

Did you know that UpToDate, Micromedex, and many other HSLS databases have mobile apps that provide you with access to clinical information anytime and anyplace? These apps are available to Pitt and UPMC users through the HSLS subscriptions to the full databases.

To see a list of available apps and access instructions, direct your browser to the HSLS Mobile Resources website. Here you’ll find information on what apps are available, how to create an account, account expiration, app contents, and how to access help. Links are also provided to the Apple iTunes and Google Play Store so you can easily download an app.

The Mobile Resources website also lists which HSLS databases are fully responsive and can adapt any screen size, but don’t have apps. These include: AccessPharmacy, AccessSurgery, CINAHL, and ISI Web of Science.

For further information, please call the Falk Library Main Desk at 412-648-8866 or e-mail Ask a Librarian.
