3. In the upper right corner click Register Now
4. Fill out the registration and submit You can now download the UpToDate app on your phone, and login with the login and password you created.
Here is a more detailed description of process:
The UpToDate app is available to all of our students. Setting up the app is a two step process. First, you have to create an UpToDate Username and Password. This has to be done on the UpToDate website accessed through the library's subscription. Go to UpToDate (you can find this link on the library website as well under Databases). The link will take you to the AHU sign in page. Once you sign in with your AHU username and password, it will send you to the UpToDate website. Click on the orange Register button in the upper right. Fill out the form to register for your personal UpToDate account. This account is separate from your AHU account, but it is connected the library's UpToDate subscription.
Once you have registered for an account, go on your mobile device and download the UpToDate app from the app store. Open the app and log in with the username and password you just created on the UpToDate website. You will then have access to the full UpToDate app.
To maintain access to the full app, you have to refresh the connection between your UpToDate account and the library's subscription. Do this by going back to the library website in your browser and accessing UpToDate using our link (library.ahu.edu -> databases -> UpToDate). Whenever you go to the UpToDate website using the library's link (after the first time when you registered for an UpToDate account), UpToDate will recognize you and automatically sign you into your account and refresh the connection between the account and the library's subscription.
If you have any questions about this process or run into issues, please let the library know.
