As preceptors you are invited to use electronic resources available from Cowles Library in your activities with students. In addition to standard drug information databases such as Micromedex, Facts & Comparisons and Lexi-Comp, you can access a variety of journal indexing websites such as Scopus, Medline-EBSCO, International Pharmaceutical Abstracts (IPA) and others. You can also access thousands of full text journals and eBooks.

You will be required to fill out a brief form.  Be sure to click "submit" when completed.  You will receive an email within 24 hours verifying your registration with instructions to begin using the library.  Once your registration is verified, you will be able to use online library resources by simply using your PEMS username and password.
