Access to Up-To-Date database - Evidence based clinical decision support resource


The University library has acquired the UptoDate database on Health Sciences.

The database aims to enhance access and uptake of the latest clinical evidence among future health care providers for better patient care everywhere, for everyone, every time. The database is supported by Ariadne Labs, a center for health systems innovation parented by the Harvard School of Public Health and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

To access, please follow the steps below:

  1. Visit while connected to the University's internet

  3. Click "Register" fill out the form and submit. Then "Accept" the License Agreement and “Search Dialog box" appears for one to do various searches
