Did You Get an Email About Your Account Lapsing? Don't Panic!

UptoDate may occasionally send you an email requesting that you verify your DMU affiliation. Or, as an app user you may see a message in the app as well.

renew your access

Don't Panic. 

The email or app may seem to imply that you need to be on the DMU network. You do not need to be on campus.  To verify your DMU identity, simply 

1, Access the web version of UptoDate using the links provided by the library. Links to UptoDate are on the library pulse page as well as this libguide. As long as you can access a web browser from your phone you can do this from your mobile device.

2. Log into your personal account with UptoDate (not your DMU credentials - what username/password did you originally select?). After you log into your personal account from the website, the app should refresh itself immediately.

login to your personal account


Please note: If you already have an existing account, do not register again if you can't remember your credentials. If you have forgotten your username or password, contact UpToDate support (800) 998 - 6374 OR 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.
