A list of resources available for UTMB Alumni.
The University of Texas Medical Branch Moody Medical Library recognizes that many of our alumni wish to continue using the Library's collections and resources after graduation. Alumni are welcome to use the Library's print and electronic resources on-site. However, our licensing agreements with publishers specify that off-campus access to electronic resources must be limited to current UTMB students, staff, and faculty.

a database that contains abstracts of systematic reviews and randomised controlled trials relevant to occupational therapy. Trials have been critically appraised and rated to assist you to evaluate their validity and interpretability. These ratings will help you to judge the quality and usefulness of trials for informing clinical interventions. In one database, OTseeker provides you with fast and easy access to trials from a wide range of sources.
Due to a lack of funding for OTseeker, content on OTseeker from 2016 and beyond is not as comprehensive as previously. Therefore, we recommend that users of OTseeker also search for more recent evidence using other freely available search engines and databases such as PEDro, and PubMed.
