Q. My professor mentioned we need access to UpToDate through the library as we will be using this program regularly. How do I do that and how do I get the app on my phone?
1) You can access UpToDate by going to APU's main library page at https://www.apu.edu/library/, scroll down and click on "Articles and Databases" then click "View all databases."
2) The next page is a list of all our Databases A-Z. Click on the letter "U." then UpToDate
At the top of your screen you may see a notice asking you to accept cookies. If you're OK with that go ahead and click yes.
3) In the upper right corner click on Register and fill out the form. In order to benefit from all of UpToDate's features, you'll need to do this. One feature is having access to their mobile app.
Be aware you must verify your APU affiliation every 90 days by logging into UpToDate from an in-network APU computer or on a mobile device connected to the APU Wi-Fi. Five days before the expiration date, UpToDate will send you an e-mail reminder to reverify your account. Also, content in the app must be updated when prompted.
4) To get UpToDate on your smart phone, go to the library's main page, the A-Z Databases, "U" then UpToDate and scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Mobile Access and follow directions.
