Wegner Library's Web Site to Change

During the week of March 9, 2015, The University of South Dakota (USD) is transitioning to its new public Web site. You will begin to notice a change in the look of certain internal pages, but their functionality should remain the same. 

This will affect the University Libraries' and the Wegner Center Library's Web pages as well. Page directs are being created by University Libraries' to help with the transition but some Web browser bookmarks may need to be updated or recreated. 

The changes will make the Web pages more streamlined and will help with displaying the libraries' Web pages on mobile devices. 

Please let us know if you have any questions!

New Method for Accessing DynaMed on Mobile Devices

Where will you find DynaMed?
On each of the libraries' Web sites, DynaMed can be found under the list of databases.

What is it?
DynaMed is an evidence-based tool with up-to-date summaries of medical conditions and drug information. The summaries are tied to the literature (journal articles, consensus reports, guidelines, etc.). Besides the basic laptop version, DynaMed has a mobile version that will run on iPhones, iPads, the iPod touch, and various Android devices. 

How do I download the mobile version?
1) Download the free DynaMed app from the iTunes App Store or through Google Play -- a password is required to access these "stores"
2) Once you have the DynaMed app, go to a computer where ever there is a USD connection -- the library, the SSOM, etc., and "pull-up" the DynaMed database from the libraries' list of databases
3) Click on the MOBILE link in the DynaMed toolbar at the top of the screen.
4) You will be asked for your email address. You will then be sent an email that authenticates you. Open the email from your mobile device and tap the authentication link. Make sure you are on the internet connection so that DynaMed can be downloaded.
5) A DynaMed serial number from the library is no longer required.  

Other information:
After installing the app and downloading the DynaMed content, the app can be used offline without a wireless signal. A wireless signal is required to perform updates to the DynaMed content when updates become available.

You can use the authentication link on up to 3 devices at a time. For additional devices, send yourself another authentication link from DynaMed.

DynaMed requires at least 500MB of memory. It will run on iOS 7.0 or higher and Android 2.4 or higher. 

Please contact us if you have more questions!
