Trial access to ClinicalKey


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.

Trial – ARAS: The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism

logoWe have trial access to ARAS: The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism until the 31st December.

The ARAS archive contains about 17,000 photographic images, each cross-indexed, and accompanied by scholarly commentary. The commentary includes a description of the image with a cultural history that serves to place it in its unique historical and geographical setting. Often it also includes an archetypal commentary that brings the image into focus for its modern psychological and symbolic meaning, as well as a bibliography for related reading and a glossary of technical terms. This online resource will be of interest to students and staff of Edinburgh College of Art, and the Schools of History, Classics and Archaeology, and Literature, Languages and Culture.
