Sneak Peek: Medical Library Website Redesign

The Medical Library website, in conjunction with Kresge Library, is undergoing a major update this summer!

The new site will feature a simplified, user-centered interface, clear organization of content, easier navigation between the Medical Library, Kresge Library and School of Medicine sites, and a responsive design that automatically adjusts to tablet and phone screens. To provide consistency in locating resources and coordinating services among the OU Libraries, search and service interfaces will mirror those of Kresge Library. The library presence on the School of Medicine website will also be expanded to include the library's mission, vision, policies, and other key information.

You may preview the beta version of the medical library website at http://medlibbeta.oakland.edu
This is still a work in progress, so some pages may not be functional. We welcome your feedback, so please send comments and suggestions to medref@oakland.edu.

Mobile Apps to Track the Literature

Are you tired of having your email inbox flooded with journal table of contents or signing up for RSS feeds to track the literature? You don't have time to search PubMed or the greater literature on a regular basis? Try one of these mobile apps!

BrowZine The library recently subscribed to Browzine, the digital equivalent to browsing the stacks or print journals! No searching required!

BrowZine incorporates our library's journal subscriptions as well as open access journals. You can create a personal bookshelf of favorite journals (including the current issue and any back issues subscribed to by us!), save citations to Zotero, Mendeley, or Dropbox, and access the full-text of journal articles.

Compatible Devices: iPad, Android Tablets
How to Install: Go to the App Store or Google Play, search BrowZine, download, and select Oakland University as your institution.

Note: Some major publishers, including Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, are not currently participating in Browzine.

Read by QxMD is a free mobile app designed to help you track the literature in your subject area by following your favorite specialties, journals, and keywords. It also links to our institutional journal subscriptions allowing you to save and access the full-text of articles for future reading as well as searching PubMed directly.
