Step 1: Access UptoDate from the Library.
Step 2: Register for a personal account with your DMU email address. This account is not associated with DMU. This is a personal account with the publisher. Please do not use your DMU credentials (active directory login).
Step 3: Download the UptoDate app.
UptoDate may occasionally send you an email requesting that you verify your DMU affiliation. The email may imply that you need to be on the DMU network. Don't Panic. You do not need to be on campus. To verify your DMU identity, simply access the web version of UptoDate using the links provided by the library. As long as you can access a web browser from your phone you can do this from your mobile device.
Next, log into your personal account with UptoDate. If you use the links on this guide (instead of the Pulse) you may be automatically logged into your personal account.
If you see Des Moines University, Click Log In / Register.
After you log into your personal account from the website, the app should refresh itself immediately.
Please note: If you already have an existing account, do not register again, just login with your existing account. If you have forgotten your username or password, contact UpToDate support (800) 998 - 6374 OR firstname.lastname@example.org. Registering again will give you two accounts and this will mostly likely cause a problem.
Are you having trouble logging into the app, even though you followed the directions on this guide? Try deleting the app and the logging in again.
