UpToDate subscription expiry

The UpToDate subscription will expire on 31 July and due to the very high cost it has unfortunately not been possible to renew the subscription.

If you use UpToDate to log and redeem CPD points as evidence of your personal CPD, it is important that you download these CPD points before that date if you would like to evidence them in your portfolio. Instructions on how to do this are available on the Bodleian Libraries website.

Please contact us at hcl-enquiries@bodleian.ox.ac.uk for more information or help.
