PubMed and Internet Explorer 6

As of September 1, PubMed may no longer work with IE 6. The current version of Internet Explorer is IE 9 and if you look at the Microsoft Internet Explorer download page, it doesn’t go back further than IE 7.

You can find out which version of Internet Explorer you are using, you can find that information listed at the top of the browser under “Help” and then “About Internet Explorer” or under the gear icon on the top right of the browser and there is an option for “About Internet Explorer” near the bottom of the list.

If you are located within the hospital, you might want to contact HCIS to see if they can update your browser.  Other users should contact their IT support folks if they do not have administrative rights to their computers.

Another option is to work through Virtual Desktop. This site allows UI users to utilize software programs without downloading them to a computer.

If you have any questions or comments about accessing or using PubMed, feel free to contact us at (319) 335-9151 or lib-hardin@uiowa.edu.
