The library has renewed its group subscription to Essential Evidence Plus. As a result, if you are currently using Essential Evidence Plus on your handheld device, the application registration must be updated with your extended expiration date.
If you have installed the Essential Evidence Plus Updater application on the desktop PC to which you sync their handheld, your Essential Evidence Plus application registration will be automatically updated on the first sync after the current registration expires. You will receive a message such as “Registration information was set” on this sync.
If you have not installed the Essential Evidence Plus Updater application, or if automatic registration through the Updater is not successful, you will need to re-register your Essential Evidence Plus application manually. Here are the instructions (pdf) for manual registration (http://www.library.umc.edu/IR_How2Re-Reg.pdf)
The University of Mississippi Medical Center has now teamed up with Pubget to give you fast access to millions of biomedical articles. Instead of search results linking to papers, like you find with typical tools, with Pubget, the results are the papers. You can save, manage, and share them—all online.
Pubget was created in 2007 by a research scientist at Harvard, who was frustrated with how long it took to get to journal PDFs. Now this free tool serves over 100,000 scientists at over 150 schools around the world –including this one!
Here are a few cool features to try:
- Perform advanced searches using any Pubmed or Google Scholar tag, learn how here: http://pubget.com/site/help/use

The Library is currently offering a trial to the EBSCO database Nursing Reference Center. NRC seeks to enhance patient care by providing a point-of-care tool for nurses designed to provide relevant evidence-based medical information. NRC is the first truly point-of-care tool for nurses providing an array of vital non-journal content which can be integrated into any electronic health record (EHR) system in order to streamline nursing efficiency and reduce medical errors.
NRC features the CINAHL Nursing Guide, including 3,600 evidence-based lessons on procedures including Quick Lessons; clinically-organized nursing overviews that are designed to map the nursing work flow, and Evidence-Based Care Sheets; evidence-based summaries on key topics incorporating the best available evidence through rigorous systematic surveillance. The point-of-care tool also includes unique nursing reference books, lab & diagnostic test overviews, legal cases, point-of-care drug information for nurses and customizable patient education information.
Nursing Reference Center enables nurses to quickly access the best available evidence on conditions or diseases and to review the leading nursing reference books at the point-of-care which can be integrated into their nurses’ workflow. By infusing evidence-based content into the workflow, NRC is designed to improve the consistency of care and ensure that the latest guidelines and medical alerts are known by the entire nursing staff. NRC allows nursing administrators to compile pertinent information on nursing standards, common conditions & treatment, diagnostic tests, research instruments, questionnaires and drug information on a floor by floor or department by department basis.
Use your library login & password to access the NRC trial here: http://www.library.umc.edu/umc (a vendor required login & password are provided). Also be sure and take the survey.
We recently added a link to the Drug Information Portal from the National Library of Medicine to our E-database page. Starting at the Portal page you can find information on dietary or herbal supplements. Just click on Resources by Class and follow the links.. to the resource described below..
The Dietary Supplements Labels Database includes information from the labels of over 3,000 brands of dietary supplements in the marketplace, including vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, amino acids, and other specialty supplements.
The database is designed to help both the public and health care providers find information about ingredients in brand-name products, including name, form, active and inactive ingredients, amount of active ingredient/unit, manufacturer/distributor information, suggested dose, label claims, warnings, percentage of daily value, and further label information.
