Find Library Resources
uSearch is a one-stop tool for finding physical and digital resources available in all seven University of Miami Libraries across the three campuses.
Create an account in uSearch to:
- Access full-text e-resources
- Locate print or other physical resources
- Save items to your e-shelf lists and export citations
- Order books from other campuses for delivery to Calder
You can access uSearch from Calder Library’s homepage.
The E-Book A-Z list on Calder’s website allows for quick e-book title, subject, and package browsing for selected healthcare related e-books.
Multiple databases are accessible from laptops, tablets, and smart phones. Medical Campus users have automatic access to resources while on campus and remote access through Single Sign-On Authentication (Cane ID and Password).
Create accounts for the relevant databases while on campus networks (wifi or campus computers) or while using remote access. Then download and open the App, using the username and password created for the account.
