UpToDate is a very popular electronic textbook. It actually represents a new category of reference materials, an electronic reference tool, a textbook with the ability to update continuously.  The breadth and depth of coverage of medical topics in UpToDate has also contributed to its great popularity.  Some entries in this resource have graded evidence but, for the most part, it consists of text entries by author-experts. Therefore, except for the small portion of UpToDate that contains evidence-ratings, this resource is not actually evidence-based.
