New Clinical and Research Resources

The Health Sciences Libraries at the University of Michigan are excited to offer the following new or returning clinical and research databases for U-M health care professionals, researchers, and students. All of the resources are available both on-campus and off-campus. For those located in the Hospital, the clinical resources will soon be accessible from the Clinical Homepage (http://www.med.umich.edu/clinical/).

Dentistry & Oral Science Sources
Covers all facets relating to the areas of dentistry including dental public health, endodontics, facial pain & surgery, odontology, oral & maxillofacial pathology/surgery/radiology, orthodontology, pediatric dentistry, periodontology, and prosthodontics. This database includes full-text.

EMBASE
A biomedical and pharmacological bibliographic database, which provides access to citations and abstracts from biomedical and drug literature via EMBASE and MEDLINE. It contains over 19 million indexed records from 7,000+ peer-reviewed journals, covering 1947 to date, with more than 600,000 additions annually.

The ProQuest Nursing & Allied Health Source
A database providing full text journals, evidence based resources, and dissertations to support the study of the many aspects of nursing or the allied health professions, including physical therapy, radiography, dietetics, dental hygiene, and the clinical laboratory sciences.

Pediatric Care Online
A point-of-care resource which integrates multiple pediatric resources including the new AAP Textbook of Pediatric Care, Point-of-Care Quick Reference, Pediatric Drug Lookup, Bright Futures (comprehensive health supervision guidelines), AAP Red Book information, a Signs & Symptoms Search, AAP guideline updates, and hundreds of patient handouts with easy to read explanations for many conditions and procedures.

DynaMed
A clinical reference tool created by physicians for physicians and other health care professionals for use primarily at the 'point-of-care'. It contains clinically organized summaries for more than 3,000 topics using evidence-based medicine. Unlike UpToDate, remote access (i.e., off-campus) is available.

SCOPUS
An abstract and citation database that provides access to nearly 18,000 peer-reviewed journals, 435 million scientific web pages, 23 million patent records, and "Articles-in-Press" from over 3,000 journals.

JAMAevidence
Integrates available evidence with clinical experience. It includes Users' Guides to the Medical Literature: A Manual for Evidence-Based Clinical Practice (2nd edition) and The Rational Clinical Examination: Evidence-Based Clinical Diagnosis. This resource is jointly offered with financial support from the University of Michigan’s Office of Graduate Medical Education.

R2 Digital Library
Offers full-text access to over 120 premier health science e-books in medicine, nursing, and dentistry.

Why can't I access new dental research information when I am a practicing U Of M dental hygienist? I was planning on using new dental information at a staff meeting in my office tomorrow.
