  1. Go to UpToDate

  2. Put in your database login

  3. Click on "Register Now" and fill out the form. Use any email you prefer.

  4. After you click “submit registration”. And now you have access to UpToDate on the computer.

  5. (Optional!) The username and password you created in the previous step will allow you to download the app on your phone. Go to your phone’s App store, search for UpToDate, and download it.  Plug in the username and password you just created. In order to re-authenticate your app every 90 days, just log into UpToDate on a browser (anywhere!).

Oak Point students and faculty love using the UpToDate and the app, so there are two videos below to help you gain access to the database and how to download the app. If you have any questions or issues with this process, please do not hesitate to contact the library for assistance.
