This guide will help you access library resources using your smartphone or other mobile device.
Apps on this page are availableFREE 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.
Step 1: To activate and for continued access to the app, you must have an active My Access account and sign in every 90 days through your institution, either on-site or through a VPN. Sign up for a My Access account today by logging into your subscription and clicking on your institution name in the upper right hand corner.
Sign up for and complete a MyAccess profile by logging into AccessMedicine on a work computer. Then click on "Ministry Health Care" or "Columbia-St. Marys" or "Wheaton-Franciscan" in the upper right-hand corner. 1 – Click Create a Free MyAccess Profile. 2 – Click “Don’t have a MyAccess profile,” and fill in the form. It’s that easy!
