KEMH Medical Library: Mobile Resources

Mobile App Basics

All of the Library's electronic resources can be accessed via the internet on mobile devices by KEMH staff.  However, you get better results from resources specifically tailored for mobile devices.  This guide will focus on tailored resources for

                  Android       iOS       BlackBerry        Windows  

 

A website might be automatically 'simplified' for viewing on a mobile device or you may need to click on a link that switches to mobile view. Alternatively, you can use a Mobile App.

Mobile Apps

  • Mobile Apps usually have greater functionality than the simplified version of a webpage.
  • Some Apps require the mobile device to be connected to the Internet when used. Other Apps(e.g. Dynamed) download the content to the mobile device & can be used without Internet connection.
  • Some apps are designed for the Smartphone & do not work as well on tablets - this will be indicated in the download information.
  • Not all Apps are available across all operating systems - there may be Apps for Apple that are not available for Android & vice versa.
  • Apps for licenced resources require an authentication process before you can access the information.
  • Some Apps are FREE! to download, others require payment $                                                                                                         

Library Bookmarklets   

  • A Library bookmarklet allows you to access the Library's journals from home or work without having to go through the Library's website.
  • Bookmarklets are available for computers, laptops &  devices. For more information see theBookmarklets tabs in the Downloads for Mobile Devices box.
