Keeping Up with the Literature

Read by QxMD

Alert:

For those who have been using this app prior to UT instituting the DUO multifactor authentication process, you may now find that you cannot get to the full text articles as you were previously able.  The vendor has now fixed the problem, but if you have an old account, you will need to delete that account on your device, and reset your account using the process below. 

We have partnered with Read by QxMD to bring you easy access to our library journal subscriptions.

This app is a literature surveillance/table of contents alert app which provides a single place to keep up with new medical and scientific research. 

  • Curate your feed by filtering for your professional specialty and your favorite journals. 
  • Save collections of articles that are important to you.
  • Browse abstracts and download full text articles available through the UT Libraries' journal subscriptions. 

The app is available via the Apple App Store and the Google Play store. The Read web app is also available for use on your computer.
