What is ClinicalKey?
ClinicalKey includes the MDConsult database but with expanded content including hundreds of additional eBooks, eJournals, guidelines, videos, images, First Consult, Procedures Consult, and more into one platform with a single-search interface. The University Libraries has purchased an LLUH enterprise-wide site license to ClinicalKey.
Please begin to transition from MDConsult to ClinicalKey now (from on-site) at www.clinicalkey.com. You will be able to find links to ClinicalKey from all of the same places you now can find MDConsult (the Library’s home page, the VIP Intranet Clinical Desktop, etc.).
For more information you need to know about ClinicalKey, such as remote access options and creating a personal account, please see the ClinicalKey tab on the Clinicians Library User Guide.
Why are we switching to ClinicalKey?
Elsevier is phasing out MDConsult and replacing it with ClinicalKey. They will cease updating the MDConsult platform December 2013 and only update content through 2014. Elsevier offered the Library several ways to migrate to ClinicalKey. The University Library chose the most cost effective option which is to migrate now, July 2013. MDConsult will continue to be available for Loma Linda University Health entities through August 9, 2013, after which it will no longer be available.
The University Libraries recently purchased an enterprise-wide site license to VisualDX, a diagnostic clinical decision support tool of over 1,200 pediatric and adult conditions with over 25,000 images. Physicians can search by diagnosis, build a patient-specific differential, or look up drug-induced adverse reactions by medication. VisualDx aids in the identification of dermatologic, infectious, genetic, metabolic, nutritional and occupational diseases, benign and malignant growths, drug-induced conditions, and other injuries.
LLU’s license to VisualDx includes on-site and remote mobile access. VisualDx Mobile is available as native iPhone, iPad, and Android apps. Follow these instructions to get the mobile app:

The new lights, ceiling, carpet, paint, and reupholstered chairs are now ready for use on the fourth floor. However, we are not finished. New study tables, study carrels, and new lounge furniture are on order. The group study room, 435, is also ready for use, but the individual study rooms aren’t ready just yet. So while we are not finished with all the details, you can use the space while we wait for the new furniture. We’ll keep you posted and let you know when we’ll need to close for the furniture installation.
Be sure you check out the new drinking fountain!
