Mobile Resources: General Set Up Instructions

Rules of Thumb for Setting Up Mobile Apps

Go to the resource THROUGH THE FIU LIBRARY website to get to the online interface of the database/ resource/ product.

  • DO NOT "Google" the resource and go directly to the electronic resource's URL to find these links or passwords.

Once you arrive at the resource via the Medical Library, follow its instructions to set up the mobile app.

  • For apps that require personal accounts, look for a registration or sign-up option and use your FIU e-mail.
  • For apps that require a vendor-supplied institutional password, look for a section on the site about using their mobile app.
  • For apps that require a vendor-supplied authentication link, look for a section on their site about using their mobile app and follow those instructions.
