UpToDate Access Changes

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Beginning May 8, 2012 a new contractual arrangement with UpToDate limits access to this tool to University of Toronto residents and students only.  We regret that faculty and staff no longer have access. Please see the detailed explanation on Gerstein Science Information Centre’s web page for background information.

UofT students and residents  can access to UpToDate with either their UTORID & password OR barcode and PIN.
If  you are a student or resident, and  you cannot access UpToDate, then contact giving your UTORID, name, and email address so that we can investigate the problem further.


For more information on the changes and rationale, please see Gerstein Science Information Centre’s web page.
