  • Health Sciences Apps for Handhelds


    Do you have a web-enabled mobile device? If so, there are loads of health sciences related applications to help with your work. Check out just a few of these handy tools:

    • Epocrates Rx - Free drug reference that works on many popular mobile devices.
    • QxMD Cardiology - Free calculator for iPhone or BlackBerry; designed for cardiologists, internists, ER physicians, primary care physicians, and trainees who see patients with cardiac disease.
    • PubMed for Handhelds - Search from any web-enabled device. However, you may not be able to get full text when not in the library. Currently the UCSF VPN client offers limited support for mobile devices.

  • Print Journal Cancellations: Feedback Needed by September 8


    Every fall, the UCSF Library reviews its journal subscriptions as part of the renewal process for the upcoming year. Due to the severe UC budget crisis, the rising cost of electronic journal and database subscriptions, and the demand for electronic access, we must identify savings through the reduction of print subscription costs.

    For 2010, we are nominating 123 print journals for cancellation. Only the print versions would be discontinued -- all would remain available online to the UCSF community.
