Resolved: Online Guided Gross Anatomy Dissector – Download Limit Exceeded Error

April 9, 2018

UPDATE: This issue has been resolved.

An increase in usage of the Online Guided Gross Anatomy Dissector has triggered a setting at the vendor site aimed to protect the contents from excessive use (which can indicate non-legitimate use) and blocking access.   The company is investigating and examining the bandwidth requirements for this product.  We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to resolve the issue quickly.

Evidex provides the latest clinical data to facilitate real-time evidence-based decisions which help keep patients safe. This webinar will cover how to search Evidex by drug product, drug/adverse event reactions, and strategies for comparison of the safety of drugs within a class, indication, or mechanism of action.

During the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, two Facilities projects will be undertaken in DML:

  • Sound system: a new sound system will be installed on the 2nd floor. This will be very noisy, with drilling and installation of 38+ speakers plus wiring.
    The noise will travel to all parts of DML, and may occasionally sound like gunshots as bolts are implanted into concrete beams and the ceiling.
    21 December 2017 – 02 January 2018
  • Painting: more than 30 doors throughout DML will be sanded and repainted. Some will be removed from their hinges to accomplish this.
