In a world where the Medical Library now lives in your pocket or purse with many Duke-provided mobile apps, let's make sure you know that…

  • The Lexicomp app requires a subscription code (provided via Duke's institutional license). This code changes yearly and this year's expires on August 31st. Make sure you go to Lexicomp, click on the Mobile App Access button, and follow their instructions to update your subscription code.
  • DynamedPlus has made significant changes to their website and mobile app as well as renaming the product just Dynamed. You will need to update your mobile app by going to iTunes or Google Play to download the new Dynamed app and logging in with your username/password.
  • You can get CME/CE earned from UpToDate and Dynamed. These will fulfill MOC CME requirements of some ABMS Member Boards including the ABIM.
  • The Library offers the Johns Hopkins ABX Guide. This resource features frequently updated, evidence-based information on the treatment of infectious diseases to help you make decisions at the point of care.
  • Duke pays for subscriptions to other apps including, Lippincott Procedures for nursing, respiratory therapy, and physical therapy.
  • Looking for guidelines? Try the Guideline Central app!
  • You can use Read by QxMD to easily keep up with your favorite journals. This offers you one tap access to full text articles via our institutional version.
  • iMedicalApps, created by a team of physicians, allied health professionals and trainees, is a great resource for in-depth information on mobile medical technology and mHealth. They also developed iPrescribeApps.com, a platform that enables providers to prescribe health apps to their patients.
  • Librarians help students and clinicians find, download, and use high-quality medical related apps via classes or individual consultations and can help you too.

These and other tools are available on our Mobile Apps guide. We invite you to try them out! Email us at medical-librarian@duke.edu with questions or comments.
