AccessMedicine upgrade, new products

AccessMedicineWe are pleased to announce that our AccessMedicine subscription has been upgraded to an institutional site license with no restrictions on the number of users.  That means no more lock-outs for AccessMedicine.  Many thanks are owed to the School of Medicine for contributing funds to support this upgrade.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

AccessMedicine is a dynamic resource that includes online textbooks, case studies, videos, drug monographs, USMLE review questions, diagnostic tools, and more.  The online book collection is very popular and it includes top titles such as Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, Dr. Michael Levitzky’s Pulmonary Physiology, Dr. Patricia Molina’s Endocrine Physiology, and the Current Diagnosis & Treatment series, just to name a few!

Custom-curriculum

As a bonus, we can now offer expanded access to the Custom Curriculum component of this resource.  Instructors can register their MyAccess profiles for the added capability of developing and managing interactive learning modules where they can assign readings, give quizzes, and track students’ progress.  See the Custom Curriculum web page for more information or contact the School of Medicine Librarian Liaison, Kathy Kerdolff, if you have any other questions.

Case-Files-Hem-Onc

Two new collections have been added to our arsenal as well:

AccessMedicine’s HemOnc Collection, which provides online access to top titles in Hematology and Oncology, and the Case Files Collection, which adds over 1,000 case files to our subscription.

AccessEM-Surg

We have also renewed AccessEmergency Medicine at a level of 3 concurrent users, and thanks to continued funding from the Department of Surgery, we are able to maintain our AccessSurgery subscription at a level of 10 concurrent users.  The Department of Surgery has been funding extra users on that subscription since 2008!  We couldn’t have done it without you either! To maximize the usefulness of those limited users, please remember to sign out when you are finished using those databases.

Access-sign-out

We hope you find all of these subscriptions useful in your teaching, education, and research!

Mosby’s Nursing Consult upgrade January 1, 2016

CKN-snag

Mosby’s Nursing Consult is getting a face-lift AND a new name, ClinicalKey for Nursing!  Elsevier is upgrading its popular online nursing resource effective January 1, 2016.  Our staff is currently working with Elsevier on this transition, and we hope to have it all running smoothly for the start of the Spring semester.  We are almost up-and-running, but there are still some issues, primarily with the off-campus access.  We will share the news on the blog when everything is fixed.

The new platform includes most of the same content with some exceptions, particularly where outdated information is concerned.  You will find the same, great books and journals, including books such as “Goldman-Cecil Medicine,” “Harriet Lane Handbook,” and “Sheehy’s Emergency Nursing,” and journals like “Nurse Leader,” “Journal for Nurse Practitioners,” and “Nursing Clinics of North America.”  The journal coverage goes back to 2007 where available, and we do have some of the older coverage on the ScienceDirect platform.  As with Mosby’s Nursing Consult, the books are updated with newer editions as the they are released.  Be sure to check our INNOPAC library catalog for the most accurate record of what we have.

ClinicalKey for Nursing is also a Point-of-Care tool that is designed to help nurses find information quickly.  It includes over 1,500 drug monographs, 300 procedural videos, and 175 disease topic pages.

Please contact a reference librarian if you need assistance with ClinicalKey for Nursing.
