Mobile Apps: Mobile Apps for Stimson Library Databases

Find mobile apps for library databases such as DynaMed and UpToDate, and popular and recommended medical apps.

Mobile Apps for Library Databases

The following subscription databases are available for mobile use by the U.S. Army Medical Center of Excellence students and staff:

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.

What is a mobile app?

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

Two Types of Mobile Apps

Some databases such as Dynamedex 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 for each app?

Dynamedex - 3 devices


UpToDate - 2 devices 

I am no longer a US Army Medical Center of Excellence student or staff member. Do I still have access to these apps?

Dynamedex and UpToDate are available DHA-wide through the AMEDD Virtual Library.
