Search Sets
My STAT!Ref users have the ability to create their own personal Search Sets for use within the Advanced Search page. The list box labeled "Current Search Sets" is a list containing all your Search Sets. Initially, this list will be empty, and you will only be able to add a new Search Set. Once you have added Search Sets, you will see them in the Advanced Search page in the “Search by Discipline” drop-down. You can also click here to “Edit My Search Sets.”

In settings, choose your default medical dictionary, the URL you go to when you logoff of STAT!Ref, how you would like to see the bookshelf tab in your STAT!Ref subscription, determine if you hide or show book covers on the search results page, determine if you show excerpts of results after a search, dictate the font size of STAT!Ref documents, hide or show images on the last searched panel and determine how many search results you would like to see on your page. You can also check a box to always open Figure, Table, and Video links in a new window.

Temporary Login Account
Create, activate and renew a Temporary Login Account. Why Do We Call it a Temporary Login Account? Activating the Temporary Login Account will provide the ability to login to your institutional subscription via a username (email address) and password on your mobile device, remote laptop, tablet, desktop, etc. This account will be the same as a My STAT!Ref account. The My STAT!Ref email address and password become a login account, temporarily. Temporary Login Accounts expire 90 days from initial setup, by default. Your institutions decision maker, in regards to STAT!Ref, can request to make the expiration shorter or longer from 30 days up to 365 days.

Visit the STAT!Ref Mobile page to learn more on how to turn a My STAT!Ref account into a login account to use with our free app or from any remote location using a tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
