Accessing Lexicomp


Lexicomp is provided to you courtesy of Himmelfarb Library.

Online Access:  Lexicomp is available as a web resource and will display well on your iPad.  It can be accessed directly from from Himmelfarb Library's homepage.  The app version is useful in the clinical setting and other settings where you may not have a consistent or strong Wifi access; Lexicomp's app is also useful if you wish to install it on your phone as the Lexicomp website is not mobile-optimized.
