Mobile Apps for Medicine & Nursing

Mobile Apps Overview

This guide will help you access library resources using your smartphone or other mobile device. 

  • Apps on this page are available FREE to Ascension Wisconsin Health Associates and Providers. These apps come with our annual Library Databases subscriptions, and may require that you set up a personal account (or other authentication method) on a work computer prior to launching the app.  
  • Many Library resources have a mobile web version, while others have a stand-alone app that may be downloaded from the iTunes store, Android Marketplace. 
  • Typically, if you have a larger tablet such as an iPad you will most likely not need to use the mobile sites.

For more info about each tool, see the respective Search Tips Pages.
