Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am a Preceptor for the UT College of Pharmacy. How can I access these resources?

Q: Some of the links take me directly to the reference title I’m interested in. Others just take me to the database provider and then I have to look for the title I want. Why is that?

Q: I am a student on rotation assigned outside Austin. Is there a way for me to get a copy of an article that is only available in print in the library?

Q: I’m a UT student, but not in Pharmacy or Nursing, can I use these resources?

Q: Can I use Micromedex on my Smart Phone?

Q: I’m on rotation or studying at one of the College of Pharmacy Cooperative Programs. Are there any libraries available?

Q: I am a Preceptor for the UT College of Pharmacy. How can I access these resources?

A: Preceptors must first contact Jennifer Ridings-Myhra: (512) 475-9752, jennifer.ridings-myhra@austin.utexas.edu to request library privileges, then use their UT EID/password for access to these resources.

Q: Some of the links take me directly to the reference title I’m interested in. Others just take me to the database provider and then I have to look for the title I want. Why is that?

A: Some of our database providers supply a method for deep linking to individual titles. When possible we use those to link directly. Otherwise, we can only link you to the service and then you will have to find the title of interest. In some cases you can’t see the individual titles that are available until after you complete a search.

Q: I am a student on rotation assigned outside Austin. Is there a way for me to get a copy of an article that is only available in print in the library?

Inter Library Services (ILS) supplies materials for you whether they are in the library or not.  Go to the ILS page and choose ILS Login or Get A Scan. Enter your UT EID and password, and then at the Main Menu, choose "Change User Information." At the bottom of the "Personal Information" page, change "Location Status" to "Remote Delivery." Choose "Submit" and then choose the appropriate New Request.

For more information about ILS, check the ILS FAQ page for Remote Delivery

Q: I’m a UT student, but not in Pharmacy or Nursing, can I use these resources?

A: Any UT student, staff or faculty member can use these resources with current UT EID.

Q: Can I use Clinical Pharmacology CP Mobile on my Smart Phone?

A: Clinical Pharmacology now has a Clinical Pharmacology Mobile app available for Apple or Android.

  • Download the Elsevier Clinical Pharmacology app at either the Apple or Android app store.
  • If you already have a user name and password, once the app is installed on your device, you may simply log in using your current user name and password.
  • If you are a subscriber but do not have a user name and password, please go to your Clinical Pharmacology home page and click on Offsite Access to create your user name and password, which you can use to log in to the Clinical Pharmacology mobile app. Use the form to request your CP Mobile code, including your UT EID in the Student/Faculty ID box. Clinical Pharmacology will send you an email with your access code and instructions. You no longer need to contact Life Science Library staff for a code.

Q: Can I use Micromedex on my Smart Phone?
