Tip-UpToDate registration


In order to use the UpToDate mobile app or full suite of online resources off campus we first need to associate your UpToDate account with the EVMS Library license agreement. NOTE: This process needs to be done once every 90 days.  UpToDate sends out reminders if you need to reconfirm your EVMS affiliation. 

Before you begin we will need current EVMS credentials.  If you have not used your credentials in over six months they are very likely expired and need to be reset.  The Network Information Center can help, Lewis Hall, Suite 1003 or 757.446.5871

  1. Go to the library webpage using any browser.
  2. Click Orange “Find Quick Links” button
  3. Under the “Clinical databases” section heading choose UpToDate^u&srcsys=EZPX123887
