How to Get the Access App

The Access mobile app allows users to search across all of the Access resources available through the Leatherby Libraries (AccessMedicine, AccessPharmacy, etc.). Users will also have access to videos, podcasts, images, infographics, and textbooks.

A free Access Profile is required to use the app. Users will not need an additional profile if they have previously created a profile to save content on AccessMedicine, AccessPharmacy, or other McGraw Hill resources.

Other helpful features of the app include:

  • Find and Save Resources - search anything from symptoms to procedures and then favorite or save to a collection.
  • Refine by Content Type - get the right type of content that suits your learning style or time constraints.
  • View Content Offline – no Wi-Fi is required to use the app, which is helpful when used in clinical environments or out on the field.
