Access to MDConsult ends on Thursday, September 5th


Earlier this year, UMHS began its transition from the MDConsult database to its replacement, Clinical Key.  Clinical Key offers more than 900 e-books, 550 journals, 12,000 videos, 3.7 million images, and much more. The cutover to the new platform will occur on Thursday, September 5th.   Beginning September 6th, links to MDConsult will no longer work.

Why is MDConsult going away?
     The product is being replaced with Clinical Key.  This decision was made by the publisher, Elsevier.

Will I get the same content on Clinical Key that was on MDConsult?
     Most of the content will migrate.  Some older e-books will not.   All e-books, journals, etc., will be listed in Miryln, the University Library’s online database.

I need help using Clinical Key.
*  View online tutorials.

Is there a mobile app or mobile site?
     Clinical Key is optimized for most tablet devices (Android, iOS, Windows).

My question is not answered here!
