There is a pending interruption in services from UpToDate, an online clinical information resource.
UpToDate has levied a 40% increase in subscription fees over the life of the contract. Our current subscription ended June 1st. If we cannot negotiate a reasonable solution, we will lose access to UpToDate. (Please note: UpToDate will still be available at the University of Miami Hospital until October 2010.)
As alternatives, we are asking health practitioners to use DynaMed, Access Medicine, MD Consult, or other evidence-based tools that are available through the Calder Library’s Web page: http://www.calder.med.miami.edu (click on E-Databases)
Reference librarians can help you choose among the options.
