Micromedex Off Campus Access

When you need clinical information to make a treatment decision, you need the right information and you need it right away. The Harriet K. & Philip Pumerantz Library is here to support that need by providing access to Micromedex 2.0. We are now able to provide remote access to this resource in addition to on-campus access.

Micromedex delivers smart search functionality and a streamlined design to help you find the evidence-based drug information and clinical answers you need. Micromedex includes all the unbiased, referenced information about drugs, toxicology, diseases, acute care, and alternative medicine you need to make informed clinical diagnosis and treatment decisions. Micromedex now includes Red Book, which has moved to online format only and will no longer be available in print. Red Book provides access to drug pricing and descriptive information for more than 200,000 active and deactivated FDA-approved prescription and over-the-counter medications, nutraceuticals, bulk chemicals, and some medical devices and supplies.
