Working in conjunction with DynaMed, Isabel is a differential diagnosis tool. If you were one of the few who found it helpful, please contact one of our reference librarians to advise you on an alternative.

Visual DX Cancelled

The School of Medicine Technology Committee has chosen not to renew Visual DX for the coming fiscal year. They were not seeing enough interest to continue the subscription. The Libraries provided access to the website but did not contribute financially to this product.


Due to lack of funds, the library is not able to continue support of the following resources:

Rehabilitation Reference Center, expires April 30, 2017
Tests in Print Online, expires April 30, 2017
Natural Medicines, expires May 31, 2017

These databases have low usage compared with other library resources.

Please feel free to contact your librarian liaison for help finding information from other sources.
