UpToDate has finally added an app for institutional subscribers! Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai users can now download UpToDate’s free mobile app to access our library subscription to UpToDate off Mount Sinai’s network.
Why is this Different? Currently you can login through the library’s website with your email username and password to access UpToDate’s mobile version on your phone or device, wherever you are. The new app provides a way to bypass the library’s login and is a sleeker interface on your phone than the regular mobile display. Instead of logging in through the library’s website, you will need to login to the app with your UpToDate username and password. In order to maintain access to the app, you will need to validate that you are still a member of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai every 30 days, by logging into your account while on campus.
To Get Started with the App:
If you already have an UpToDate user name and password, getting UpToDate Anywhere rights is easy. Access UpToDate while on campus. Log in with your existing credentials and you’ll receive an email informing you that you now have UTD Anywhere rights and instructions on how to download the Mobile App. The Log In/Register icon is in the top right hand corner.
If you don’t have an UpToDate account:
Access UpToDate while on campus. Register as a new user and create a user name and password. Use the link in the top right corner that says Log In Register. Upon completion of registration process, you will receive an email from UpToDate with instructions on downloading the mobile app.
Once you are registered for UpToDate Anywhere access with a unique user name and password, you can install the UpToDate Mobile App on up to two devices. For a full list of devices currently supported, please visit www.uptodate.com/home/uptodate-mobile-access.
To download the mobile app, follow these steps:
1. On your smartphone or tablet, search for “UpToDate” in your app store and install the application. The application is free to install.
2. Open the UpToDate Mobile App upon completion of download.
3. Log in with your UpToDate user name and password.
