Library mobile databases: everywhere you are

Do you need to do a quick literature search, but don’t have a computer with you?

Do you want to be able to look up information, but can’t find the right app in the app store?

Do you want to provide information to your patients quickly and through their smartphone?

Did you know that the library has access to mobile databases that are optimized for your smartphone or mobile device?

The Libraries’ mobile databases are located at http://uthscsa.mobi/library/data.html on your smart phone, or at http://library.uthscsa.edu/find/databases.cfm?Category=Mobile if you would like to browse the mobile databases from your computer.

Users who are not using campus wireless will be asked to login; this will allow full-text article searching straight from your phone.

Mobile databases currently offered include: MedlinePlus Mobile, PubMed for Handhelds, Academic Search Complete, CINAHL Plus with Full Text, ERIC, MEDLINE, Mobile AccessMedicine, and Stat!Ref.

MedlinePlus Mobile provides materials available to and designed for all patients and caregivers, while Academic Search Complete, CINAHL, ERIC, Mobile AccessMedicine, and Stat!Ref provide full-text articles and reference material to Health Science Center faculty, staff and students using their library or university login.
