Covid-19 Operations:  Online services and resources are still available, and we are providing a "pick-up service".  Library building access is determined by campus restrictions - check back early in each quarter to confirm your campus' library access.

Please use the "Hold" feature in the catalog to request items for pick-up: Instructions for placing holds for pick up

Request physical materials by 9am for same-day pick-up; please wait for email confirmation that the hold has been processed as unforeseen delays can happen. Note that holds can't be placed on 2-hour reserves.

Dr Bastyr's Birthday, Spirit Day, and Community Day

This week marks 110 years since our namesake, Dr Bastyr's, birth; who encouraged us to learn something new each day.  We also have spirit day on Wednesday, and Community Day on Thursday for BUC and Friday for BUK.  The BUK library will be joining in, but we will remain OPEN/ONLINE during Community Day as we know many of you pick up your weekend checkouts on a Friday afternoon.

UpToDate and VisualDx Changes

After over two years of assessment and discussion with clinic leadership, the university is ending its subscription to UpToDate at the end of June. We still provide DynaMed, which is increasingly leading the field in point-of-care tools, and is much more inclusive of natural, CAM, and integrative medicine.

UTD/DynaMed Comparison

We will also not be renewing our subscription to VisualDx primarily due to limited usage and unsustainable pricing increases, which are geared towards large hospital systems, not teaching institutions.
