MDConsult is now ClinicalKey — Important Database Change

mdconsult to clinicalkey for blog

Attention all MDConsult users!

As of Sunday, September 15th, 2013 MDConsult is now ClinicalKey.

Why the change?

Elsevier – parent company of both databases – is gradually eliminating MDConsult in favor of its new database ClinicalKey.

ClinicalKey has a massive amount of Elsevier content – it contains 550+ journals and 1,100+ ebooks. There is truly something for everyone in ClinicalKey. The interface is a little bit different and will take some getting used to (like anything new), but once you get the hang of it we’re sure you’ll like the content it contains (take a look at this introductory YouTube video to get started).

Two “Getting Started” tips:

(1) Take 60 seconds to register for ClinicalKey in the upper right-hand corner of the screen (this will allow you save searches, create a reading list, download PDF chapters of books, and more).

(2) Try a search on any topic you like. When ClinicalKey displays the search results, you can filter the results on the left-hand side of the screen. So, if you click “B” it will only show you book results for that search, while if you click “J” it will only show you journal results.

Please note: If you try to access MDConsult, you will receive a redirect message that looks like this (it will then take you to ClinicalKey automatically):
