Boston University students, faculty, and staff can use STAT!-Ref via the WWW at http://online.statref.com/default.asp?grpalias=BUSoM from computers located anywhere at the University or Medical Center, or from home and other remote locations by dialing into the ACS network. Simply open Netscape or any other WWW browser, and go to the STAT!-Ref program at http://online.statref.com/default.asp?grpalias=BUSoM.

Because of licensing agreements with the software producer, access is restricted by I.P. address (an Internet Protocol address identifies your machine's location on the Internet):

STAT!-Ref allows users to search one textbook individually, or to select up to 30 titles to be searched simultaneously. STAT!-Ref provides the capability of searching with natural language or a thesaurus. All search results, full text and tables-of-contents can be browsed and printed. Additional features include chapter bibliographies, links to relevant journal article citations from the MEDLINE database, and selected tables, figures, illustrations, and video images.
