AHSL Content via Mobile

As use of iPads and other mobile devices in the health sciences grows, there are an increasing number of subscription databases and journals making their content available.  This portion of the AHSL Mobile Apps & Resources guide highlights some AHSL resources that have apps or digital versions available.  Almost every resource is unique in how it makes its content available, whether it makes content available to institutional subscribers and/or individual subscribers, whether a personal login is required, and so forth.  Some journals offer very basic PDF-like content while others offer more interactive content. 

If you have questions about whether a journal or database you use and that AHSL subscribes to has an app available and you do not see it listed here, please email us.  Availability of such content changes quickly and we welcome your questions and comments.
