Get news feeds from UCSF Library News, as well as the University's News and Publications. Easily ask for help with library research and resources from any web page. The Clinician's Toolbar also features instant access to UpToDate and drug information.

    View and download the Library Toolbar and Clinician's Toolbar. Please note that if you have an old library toolbar installed, you should uninstall it first.
