Mobile Apps for Library Databases

The following subscription databases are available for mobile use by AMEDDC&S students and staff:

Two Types of Mobile Apps

Some databases, such as Dynamed, and Lexicomp, enable the complete download of the database to a mobile device. Once the database is downloaded it is accessible without an Internet connection, although an Internet connection is needed for any updates.

For other resources, such as EBSCOhost databases and UpToDate, the app is just an interface for viewing the database; the database itself is not downloaded and an Internet connection is required for access.

On how many devices can I install each app?

Dynamed - 5 devices

Lexicomp - 2 devices

UpToDate - 2 devices 

What is a mobile app?

A mobile app is a software application or program downloadable  to  a smartphone, tablet or other mobile device.

What is a mobile website?

A mobile website is a site that has been formatted or optimized for browser-based viewing on a small screen. You are not required to download or install a program. Mobile-optimized websites often have streamlined content and simpler navigation than their desktop versions.

I am no longer an AMEDDC&S student or staff member. Do I still have access to these apps?

Lexicomp, Dynamed Plus, and UpToDate are available AMEDD-wide through the AMEDD Virtual Library.
