“AccessPhysiotherapy (APT) is an online medical resource that provides students with the tools they need to excel in basic and advanced studies and crucial test prep. APT provides students and residents with interactive content, self-assessment, and leading medical texts to enhance decision-making at the point-of-care.

Davis and McGraw-Hill Education brings you a comprehensive online PT resource that covers the entire spectrum of physical therapy–for viewing on any device.”
Here is a quick update on newly acquired eBooks that are now ready for use. A mixed bag of valuable and important titles which needed to be highlighted. Hope there is one that interests you. As always, if there is a book we don’t have that you think should be in our collection, please let us know by recommending a purchase.
We have been tirelessly going through the course reserve books to find any remaining titles that are available electronically which we have not already acquired. I will be posting these new eBooks with direct links to the catalog here for your convenience. This first list covers MPH reserve books. Please take notice of the Public Notes that are under the platform link in JumboSearch, as they will provide you with important access information.
We have recently acquired 14 new electronic textbooks through the Stat!Ref platform. The Stat!Ref platform lets you search simultaneously across multiple textbooks. To get to it, simply go to the Hirsh Library website, click on the “Books” tab then click on “Stat!Ref.” Of course, you can also access these books individually by searching for them by title on JumboSearch.
If you’ve done dental searches on Stat!Ref or JumboSearch in the past the results will now look different – in a good way! All 14 of our new purchases were published within the last 5 years, and they cover everything from exercises to maintain or improve hand dexterity to dental codes to caries to implants to periodontitis and TMD. Here are a few titles we want to highlight in particular. You can find the full list at the end of the post.
First our most unique purchase, Dancing Hands. This book from 2013 looks at ways to improve ergonomics in the treatment room and improve manual dexterity of the dentist.
Need an introduction to materials used in restorative dentistry and how to select what? Check out Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique with entire chapters on composites, ceramics, impression taking, adhesives, posts, and more.
Treatment of TMDs: Bridging the Gap Between Advances in Research and Clinical Patient Management looks at orofacial pain, particularly in relation to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The biology of orofacial pain, as well as the biomechanics of the TMJ are established first, followed by diagnostic technology and therapeutic options ranging from injectables to pharmacologic management, including responsible use of opioids.
