Now that the DMC has partnered with Wayne State University to allow extensive library and UpToDate access, how can you access these resources?
Access the Shiffman Medical Library Homepage
In order to access the Shiffman Medical Library homepage, you can go to http://dmcresidents.com and navigate to the “Resident Resources” tab and select “Shiffman Library”, direct your browser to http://library.wayne.edu/shiffman/ , or simply Google “Shiffman Library”.
Next locate the UpToDate link on the homepage
On the homepage of the Shiffman Medical Library page there is a “Quicklinks” section that will direct you to UpToDate.com as well as some other helpful sites including PubMed. It is important to perform this step through the library homepage as it will allow you to enter through the school’s proxy and have full access to the materials.
Enter your EZProxy Login Credentials
At this time you should enter your Wayne State AccessID and password. This information should have been sent to you by your program coordinator in early October. If you do not have this information, please contact your program coordinator. If you are still having difficulty finding this information, you can contact the Shiffman Library Helpdesk at (313) 577-4778 on Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm.
Register your UpToDate Account
When you access UpToDate through the process above, you will see the following registration options on the UpToDate homepage. You should enter your information for your new account at this time. You will only have to complete this process once. Make sure to use an email address that you will have easy access to in case you forget your username or password and need to reset your account.
You can now access UpToDate from any computer or your mobile device
For future access to the UpToDate resources, you can simply direct your internet browser to http://www.uptodate.com and input your newly created username and password. You also now have the ability to download the UpToDate app from the iTunes store and the Android Play Store. You can input your credentials and be able to access the application directly from your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone.
