ClinicalKey Now Available!

(We originally announced that ClinicalKey was available yesterday, but discovered some issues with it.  It seems to be running fine now, both on-campus and off, but if you have any problems, do not hesitate to contact us at 319-335-9151.)

Elsevier’s ClinicalKey is now available through the Health Sciences Resources A-Z list, as well as through the All Databases A-Z list.  ClinicalKey will replace MDConsult in mid-January 2014, and includes most of the content currently in that resource, plus more.  All content can be searched through a single search box, or specific types of information can be selected from the top of the screen.

Clinical Key includes:

  • Over 1100 Elsevier biomedical books*
  • More than 500 journal titles*
  • Clinical monographs from First Consult
  • Procedures Consult content and videos
  • Practice guidelines
  • Clinical Pharmacology drug monographs
  • Patient education information

Although ClinicalKey can be used without individual registration, creating an account allows users to use special features, such as accessing PDFs of most book chapters (all books have HTML chapters), saving searches, and creating presentations using ClinicalKey content.

A ClinicalKey user guide is available at  ClinicalKey is available off-campus to UI students, faculty, and staff by logging in with your HawkID and password.  Questions?  Contact your liaison or the Hardin Library reference staff at 319-335-9151 or
