We are cancelling the STAT!Ref dental ebook collection due to the very high cost and lack of funds. This collection will no longer be available in STAT!Ref as of July 1st. We are currently working on replacing the content in other online formats and/or in print, so some titles from the cancelled collection will eventually be available again. Please contact the Dental Library for a list of those titles, or for information on other related resources.
