Trial of ClinicalKey

The Library is running a trial of ClinicalKey until 28th September and we’d  like to invite staff and students to evaluate  it as a potential new subscription for RCSI.

ClinicalKey is an advanced online search tool aimed at clinicians, researchers, academics and students which contains all of Elsevier’s medical and surgical content. The content includes over 500 electronic books some of which are core undergraduate texts and over 900 journals as well as procedural videos and millions of copyright cleared images.

In addition to providing high quality content, ClinicalKey also offers a search facility and a point of care tool (like UptoDate) called First Consult.

We’d be very grateful if you could spend a few minutes to look at it and let us know what you think of the content and the search functionality. Is it a product that you can see a use for, would you recommend it to students and/or colleagues and would you add your voice in support of a subscription?
