Heart Songs in CardioSource Plus

The library’s paid subscription to CardioSource Plus for Institutions includes a subscription to Heart Songs for Institutions BUT NOT Heart Songs 3 (or the older edition Heart Songs 2). Heart Songs for Institutions is only accessible by registering for a username and password on the CardioSource Plus for Institutions web site. The American College of Cardiology (ACC) classifies this product as Certified Education (tab on web site), under the eLearning & Products sub-tab.

To use Heart Songs for Institutions, check to make sure “University of Alabama at Birmingham Institutional Access” appears in the left hand corner of the CardioSource Plus for Institutions web page. To register for an account, click the Register link on the top right side of the web site. The site is easy to use and the heart songs can be downloaded and saved to your computer’s desktop.

For those who don’t want to register for an account, the library does offer “Heart Songs” (2009) on CD-ROM. However, this disc is Heart Songs 2 and not the same as Heart Songs for Institutions.

Please note that registering for an account does not give you access to the journals of the ACC. The library has a 2011 subscription to the Journal of the American College of Cardiology through Elsevier’s Science Direct. Access to JCCC is available through the library’s E-Journals web site.
