    What happened to VisualDx? I loved that thing? Can we get an institutional subscription, like to UpToDate, so I can use it on my mobile devices?

      We at the library all loved VisualDX as well. It is a one of a kind resource. When our short-term trial ended we were quoted a price for institutional access that we could not afford. UpToDate is paid for by the medical center for the same reason. We are looking for ways to gain access but to date have not had success. Whit
