Starting January 2011, DynaMed will replace UpToDate as the primary evidence-based point-of-care tool provided by Clarian Health Partners. The Indiana University School of Medicine Library paid a fee to be included in the UpToDate contract in order to provide access to IUSM students and will do likewise with the Dynamed contract.

 

UpToDate will not be renewed for 2011; the contract expires Dec. 31, 2010. Please direct comments to Rick Ralston, Assistant Director for Library Operations, at: rralston@iupui.edu
