Some of you may know that Elsevier is ending the popular resource MDConsult as of December 2014, and replacing it with a far more comprehensive product called ClinicalKey. Brown’s contract for MDConsult ends on June 30, 2014, so we’ll soon have to make a decision as to whether to add ClinicalKey to our list of resources. Adding a CK subscription may mean cancelling other resources, due to its cost, so we would love to hear the feedback of the BioMed community.
We are currently running a trial for this resource, running through November 30. Please use this opportunity to evaluate CK and let me know what you think. You can access the ClinicalKey trial at clinicalkey.com (on-campus access). Those off campus can access the trial via logging in at our database trials page.
ClinicalKey’s offerings include:
- over 500 journals
- over 1000 textbooks
- “First Consult” point-of-care clinical consults
- Procedures Consult
- drug monographs from Clinical Pharmacology
- over 13,000 medical and surgical videos
- millions of images that may be added to presentations
- over 2,000 practice guidelines
