Please note: In order to use UpToDate, Wolters Kluwer, the database vendor, requires all MSJ users to create a personal account with login credentials that are separate from their regular MSJ Library login. You must read and follow these directions for account access:
1. To create your Wolters Kluwer UpToDate personal account, go to the database link above.
2. Make sure you are NOT on the MSJ campus network (which includes VPN) when you click on the URL above. You need to access the registration site on an off-campus computer or mobile device.
3. After clicking on the MSJ Library remote access login screen. Type in your last name and MSJ Library ID number (the number labelled LIB on the front of your Mount ID card).
4. Click on either the “register” or “register now” buttons. (Please note: if you see a “subscribe” button instead of a “register” button in the upper right-hand corner, then that means you’re on the MSJ on-campus network. Please switch to an off-campus computer and try again.)
5. On the registration screen, you’ll be asked to enter your name, email address, zip code, and then identify your speciality and role. You will also create a username and password. Please note: This is the username and password that you will use to login to UpToDate from now on.
6. Once you have set up your personal account, you should now be logged in and can begin using UpToDate. From this point on, whenever you need to use UpToDate again, you can just go to https://www.uptodate.com and login using the username and password that you created when you registered. At this point, you can also download the UpToDate app for iPhone or Android, and use it with your personal account username and password. UpToDate Help and Training Site offers more information. See also the "UpToDate Anywhere Registration Guide."
For UpToDate account reactivation: UpToDate automatically deactivates UpToDate accounts after 6 months. Students will need to follow these instructions to reactivate their UpToDate account:
1. Use the database link abaove but make sure you are off of the MSJ wireless network. (For example: your laptop on any off-campus network, or your smartphone on your phone service provider’s network instead of the Mount wireless.)
2. You should first come to a MSJ Library login page. At the library login page, type in your last name and your Library ID number, which is on the front of your Mount student ID card.
3. If you have logged in successfully, you should now see the UpToDate login page. Login with your personal UpToDate login credentials.
4. If you have logged in successfully to UpToDate, then you should see some kind of message that says your access has now been renewed or reactivated.
Post-Grad 90 Day Access
How to Keep Your AccessMedicine/AccessPhysiotherapy Access for 90 Days After You Graduate:
Follow these instructions as close to graduation day as possible, in order to maximize your 90-day window of access.
Once you have logged into either AccessMedicine or AccessPhysiotherapy, click on the “Sign In” link on the top right-hand corner of the homepage, and click on the menu option that says, “Sign in or Create a Free MyAccess Profile.” If you don’t already have a MyAccess account, then click on the option that says, “Create a Free MyAccess Profile.” If you already have a MyAccess account, then go ahead and sign in with your MyAccess username and password. Please note: to get the 90-Day access, you must do both Step 1 and Step 2—in other words, you must both login to AccessMedicine or AccessPhysiotherapy AND login to your MyAccess account.
To confirm that your 90-Day access has been validated, click on your name in the top right-hand corner of the AccessMedicine or AccessPhysiotherapy homepage. Then click on the menu option that says, “My Dashboard.”
Now you should see the homepage of your “MyAccess” account. In the lower left-hand corner, there should be a message that says, “You have remote access from Mount Saint Joseph University for 90 days.”
After graduation day, you can login to AccessMedicine by going directly to the McGraw-Hill Medical Homepage: https://mhmedical.com/ and click on the “Sign In” link on the top right-hand corner of the homepage. Login with your MyAccess username and password. (Note: Do NOT login with your MSJ Library ID number; that number will no longer be valid after you graduate.)
