EBSCO's DynaMed Now Available via PDA

Building on the prominent adoption of handheld devices in the health and medical arena, EBSCO has made its DynaMed evidence based medicine database available for PDAs. It's great to see another one of the major library aggregators moving towards providing information for the mobile handheld library, especially a vendor that services the public and academic library markets, where PDA content development had been a bit slower...

From the Nov 2 press release: "PDA users can choose from a downloadable version of DynaMed, or access a live version of the database through available wireless connectivity. DynaMed is the only evidence-based reference shown to answer most clinical questions in primary care. DynaMed was created by a physician for physicians and other health care professionals as a point-of-care clinical reference tool to replace most routine textbook and article searches. In addition, this resource is a great tool for medical students and residency programs."
