To use the UpToDate app, you will first need to access UpToDate through the library homepage and create a personal account.
To create a personal account:
Click on the UpToDate link on the library website (on the right-hand side under "Popular Resources") and log in with your HelixNet username and password when prompted. If you do not know your HelixNet username and password, please call the IT Help Desk at 847.578.8800.
Upon entering your HelixNet username and password, you will be redirected to the UpToDate homepage. Once you are there, click "Log Out" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
Click on Register in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
Fill out the registration form and click "Submit Registration" at the bottom of the form.
At this point, you will be asked to accept the licensing agreement, and you will then be redirected back to the UpToDate homepage already signed in with your personal account.
An email will be sent to you from UpToDate with instructions for downloading the app (no need to wait for the email - all the instructions really say is "download the app on your device and log in with the UpToDate username and password you just created).
In order to keep using the mobile version of UpToDate, it will be necessary to log on to the desktop version (using the steps outlined above) every 90 days to re-verify your affiliation. Please note: this is the publisher's requirement, not ours.
