What is STAT!Ref online?

STAT!Ref Online is a web application. A browser with full JavaScript support and Flash support for audio and video is all that is needed by the user.

Ease of use

• STAT!Ref is intuitive to use. Most users are comfortable in a matter of minutes with how to use STAT!Ref effectively to find the information they need.

• STAT!Ref uses an AND search by default. The Boolean operators supported are: AND; OR; NOT; ADJ (adjacent); and OADJ (ordered adjacent).

• STAT!Ref provides an Advanced Search feature. This feature allows just a selection of particular titles to be searched, instead of the default of searching all titles. It provides document type selections so that only particular types of text are searched: text (regular chapter text); tables (columnar table text); Figures (image captions); video (video captions); and headers (table of contents entries - the hierarchy of the text).

• On the Results page presented after searching there are filters to allow only particular areas of interest, or disciplines to be selected, narrowing the displayed results to the titles contained within the selected discipline.

Can I create durable links to titles and resources?

Does STAT!Ref have printing capabilities?

Yes. STAT!Ref does include a print feature which will print the document currently being viewed. Because of the digital nature of these documents it is sometimes hard to know how many pages will print. The electronic version does not have page numbers so it is often better to try and print just a selection of text.

How do I add titles, IPs or increase concurrent users?

Please contact your STAT!Ref account manager if you would like to make any changes to your account.

How do I get usage statistics?

In order to access and run statistic reports, you must have a Statistician level user account or higher. Once logged in as a Statistician, follow the Reports link in the toolbar. A Statistician account was provided at the time your institution subscribed to STAT!Ref Online. Additionally, a Client Manager account may have been provided. If so, the Client Manager for your institution can set up additional Statisticians. Any Statistician may access the statistic reports, as well as the Client Manager.

In a case where there was not a Statistician or Client Manager setup, you can contact customer service and they will be happy to either setup an account for you depending upon the subscription circumstances or they will run stats for you and provide you with a report.

How do I know when a title or resource updates?

Our new titles, new editions and supplemental updates are done seamlessly behind the scenes as soon as possible after the information is released to us from the various publishers.

Links to all "New and Updated" titles can be found on our title pages. Go to

What's New

link at the bottom of the STAT!Ref Online search screen. Notes on title updates that have taken place are available from the footer of STAT!Ref Online pages through the

Title Updates

Where can I get help on how to use STAT!Ref Online?

If you are in STAT!Ref Online then the Help link in the toolbar has answers to most questions on how to use STAT!Ref Online. When you open the help page you will see the help section divided into 3 categories:

Client Manager Help

Statistician Help

User Help

Different levels of help are available based on your own user level. The Client Manager is the person within your institution who manages your STAT!Ref account. The Client Manager has access to the group's properties page -- they may view all of the group's properties and may configure username accounts as well as access the usage reports that Statisticians use.

The Statistician may generate and view statistics reports, but does not have access to group properties or username accounts.

Users have the default access level for STAT!Ref Online which they can use to find answers by using search, the table of contents and the dictionary. Users do not have access to account management or to statistics reports.

Where can I get training tools to help educate others on how to use STAT!Ref?

and we will supply you with whatever you need.

Which browsers are supported?

Officially supported browser versions are major version minus 1; e.g. Internet Explorer 8 is the official released version of IE (version 9 is in beta). So STAT!Ref supports IE 7 and later (officially). Unofficially, we do strive to maintain functionality for older browsers which requires some functionality to degrade as gracefully as possible.

"To me it's essential to save users and dentists time.. we've never had a single problem.. STAT!Ref has made it easy, it's been great."

-- Cindy Scroggins, Director of Baylor Health Science Library and Baylor school of Dentistry

"STAT!Ref offers a smart search engine, so the searcher doesn't need to be."

-- Annis Lee Adams, Health Sciences Library at the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of medicine
