Lights and Ceiling Renovation on Third

_DSC0164  1280Over the Thanksgiving break the ceiling tiles on the third floor of the library will be removed.  Then during the Christmas break a new ceiling grid, new LED lights, and new ceiling tiles will be installed.   On Wednesday, November 27th, the entire third floor will be closed so that the work can start.  The third floor computers and the print release station are being moved to the basement, Room 101, and will be available for use there.  The group study rooms will not be available on Wednesday, the 27th, or on Sunday, December 1st.  They will be back in use by December 2nd and will remain in use until Christmas break begins, December 13th.  When Christmas break begins the entire third floor will again be closed until the project is complete, January of 2014.  We thank you for your patience as we continue to upgrade the library space.

ClinicalKey Replaces MDConsult at LLUH effective August 9, 2013

ClinicalKey logo 3

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.

4th of July Holiday Schedule

Thursday, July 4th  –  Closed

The library will re-open on Friday and resume its regular operating schedule.  Please note that the Heritage Research Center is closed on Friday.
