AccessMedicine on trial

accessmedicine-icon

The Medical Library and ebooks@cambridge have organised a free trial of McGraw-Hill’s AccessMedicine platform for Cambridge University registered staff and students. You can access the platform from this link and from the ebooks@cambridge collections webpage.

The publishers say; “AccessMedicine is a comprehensive medical resource providing a complete spectrum of up-to-date, authoritative knowledge. It combines over 100 of the leading textbooks in the field with an extensive selection of additional tools to enable faculty to build curriculum-specific topics and test elements to track individual progress.”

Currently the ebooks@cambridge Service subscribes to Harrison’s Online on AccessMedicine; this trial will open up access to a further 104 etextbooks published by McGraw-Hill. You will be able to search and manipulate the full text of titles such as…

Adams and Victor’s Principles of Neurology, 10e

Basic & Clincal Pharmacology, 13e

Cardiovascular Physiology, 8e

Harrison’s Manual of Medicine, 19e

Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, 19e

Hurst’s The Heart, 13e

Review of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, 14e

Sympton to Diagnosis: An Evidence-Based Guide

Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine: A Comprehensive Study Guide

Each textbook offers unlimited concurrency and for the trial period will be available both on and off campus with a Raven login.

AccessMedicine is more than a static library of titles, it also offers study tools such as the popular interactive online flashcards (these allow users to drill down by resource and/or topic to focus in on areas of weakness), a drugs database, case files (providing real life cases), videos (which can be searched by category or system), and diagnostic tests.

You can create your own MyAccess profile to access self assessment functionality where you can create and save practice tests. You can save chapters, cases, videos, images and tables to your Favourites; view recently viewed content; download images directly to PowerPoint and more.

The free trial access finishes on Monday 14th November.

What do you think about this etextbook platform? If you would like to feed back your comments on AccessMedicine, whether about the content or on the usability of the resource, please email Jo Milton at the Medical Library on jm908@medschl.cam.ac.uk before the end of the trial.
