Ovid is now offering its subscribers a free journal app called OvidToday™. This app allows users to view the most recent issue of our Ovid journal holdings and read PDF articles on their iPad®. Users can create a personal reading list of journals they wish to follow by selecting from an A-Z list of journals or browsing by subject category. Specific articles can then be saved to a Reading List to be accessed later even when offline.
RGHS users can download the app for free by searching for ‘OvidToday’ in the iTunes App Store. Remember to have your iTunes user ID and password handy. Also, when setting up the app for the first time, users may need to enter an institutional ID and password (found in the Mobile Applications document of our library webpage under Resources A-Z). Once in OvidToday, users will then be prompted to set up a personal Ovid account or to enter their username/password if they already have one.
Additional Instructions and FAQs for OvidToday can be found at http://resourcecenter.ovid.com/site/pdf/ot/OvidToday-FAQ-for-Ovid-Administrators%20vJan15.pdf
