NEW CLINICAL AND RESEARCH RESOURCES
The Health Sciences Libraries at the University of Michigan are excited to offer the following new or returning databases for researchers, students, and health care professionals.
DynaMed (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI06355) is 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.
Pediatric Care Online (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI06353) is another point-of-care resource which integrates multiple pediatric resources including the new AAP Textbook of Pediatric Care, Bright Futures (comprehensive health supervision guidelines), AAP Red Book information on over 200 childhood infectious diseases, a Signs & Symptoms Search, and hundreds of patient handouts with easy to read explanations for many conditions and procedures.
Dentistry & Oral Science Sources (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI06357) 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 (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI02345) is 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 (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI06141) database provides 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.
Scopus (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI02035) is 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 (http://searchtools.lib.umich.edu/V?func=native-link&resource=UMI05794) 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.
