The Cushing/Whitney Medical Library is constantly on the hunt for the latest and greatest resources to make available to our users. In addition to the typical journals and books you would expect to see as part of a library’s collection, we also work to bring you tools, software, and learning modules. This semiannualseries of blog posts will highlight recent additions to the CWML collection.
Today, we’ll briefly talk about five resources now available to you:
A user-friendly app for your phone or tablet, Read by QxMD allows you to keep up with new medical and scientific research on topics of your choosing. Curate your individual home page with topics, authors, and journals of interest to you and seamlessly access full-text PDFs.
Ingenuity Variant Analysis is the latest addition to our growing suite of bioinformatics tools. IVA is a web-based tool that combines analytical functions and content from the Ingenuity Knowledge Base to help you identify disease variants in human sequencing data.

It’s back and better than ever! VisualDx, available as an app or on the web, helps clinicians in medical decision-making by providing evidence-based information at the point of care. The tool allows users to build and visualize differentials and contains the world’s largest medical image library.
Available to students and faculty, Aquifer Addiction offers online learning modules to help students identify, intervene, and address substance use disorders. It features twelve modules featuring case studies, interactive activities, and additional resources with self-assessment questions at the end for learners to gauge their progress.
