We are trialling access to Elsevier’s ClinicalKey database until 22nd December 2016.
ClinicalKey is a clinical search engine that helps health professionals make decisions anywhere, anytime, in any patient scenario. ClinicalKey’s Smart Search saves time by preventing unnecessary extra searches. Look up “myocardial infarction,” for example, and Smart Search recognizes its acronyms, synonyms, related surgical procedures and drugs, as well as the fact that it’s a cardiovascular disease associated with high cholesterol.
ClinicalKey allows you to access the latest (indexed daily), most evidence-based answers in every medical and surgical speciality. It contains:
- 1400+ Topic Pages
- 1000+ full-text reference books
- 600+ full-text journals
- 17,000+ medical and surgical videos
- 300+ Procedures Consult videos and articles
- 2,200,000 images
- 50+ Clinics
- 850+ First Consult monographs
- 2,900+ drug monographs

Pingback: Trials ending soon | E-Resources @ University of Edinburgh
When will we know whether the trial was successful and if the library will subscribe to the service?
Hi Emily, trial feedback is being reviewed and a meeting with the publisher has been set up next month. I’ll add an update here after the meeting.
This looks very likely to go ahead, in view of this, access to ClinicalKey has been turned back on while the final offer and licences are checked and agreed.
I have been unable to feedback on the feedback form.
Please continue with this service.
Hi Andy, Thanks for your message. I have passed on your comment to the Academic Support Librarians for Medicine.
