The Library has added a new database, Micromedex’s Red Book Online. Users can search for prescription or over the counter medications, nutraceuticals, bulk chemicals, medical devices or supplies by product name or manufacturer. One can also search for a specific active ingredient in the product or by a specific code (such as NDC, UPC, or HRI).
The Library has added a new database, Certification Matters. This database, from the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), is for patients and their caregivers to learn about Board Certification and its importance to quality care. Certification Matters provides a free service for patients to check if a doctor is Board Certified by an ABMS Member Board. This database is not useful for finding a doctor, but to confirm a doctor’s certification status.
The Library has added a new database, Pivot-RP. This is a web-based funding discovery and workflow tool that combines a comprehensive source of global funding opportunities with the largest collection of scholar profiles into one intuitive solution. Pivot aids funding organizations to increase their discoverability and attract the best talent through focused award promotion.
