A print copy of the DSM-5 is now available in the Hardin Permanent Reserve collection, under call number RC 455.2 .C4 D54 2013. It may be checked out for two hours at a time.
We have had several questions about whether we will be adding the electronic version of the DSM-5. The quick answer is yes, we will! The longer answer is that we have to wait for it to actually be available. We get the electronic version of the DSM through the American Psychiatric Association’s Psychiatry Online platform. They have informed us that the DSM-5 will be added sometime this summer.
If you have questions about how we acquire new resources, please contact Janna Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org or 319-335-9870.
Beginning September 1, 2011, the ability to print a chapter at a time will no longer be available in AccessMedicine and AccessPharmacy. Printing by section will still be possible. The following message from the publisher (and copyright holder), McGraw-Hill, explains why:
Last week, only a few days after it had posted to AccessMedicine, the newest version of Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine was discovered circulating on a number of digital lockers, torrent sites, and other means of illicit file sharing. A quick examination of the file revealed that the party (or parties) who had created it simply printed every chapter of Harrison’s, then “bound” it as an ebook and started distributing it. Presently, the “Print Chapter” view makes it far too easy to accomplish a task like this.
To address this issue with digital piracy, we will remove the “Print Chapter” option on all Access products. This is scheduled to be effective Thursday, September 1, on AccessMedicine. However, the “Print Section” option will remain.
