MD Consult to be discontinued. Access ends May 11, 2014.
Adios! Au revoir! Ciao! MD Consult will be going away. Our access is set to expire May 11, 2014. While Elsevier has developed a new product, Clinical Key, that replaces and expands MD Consult, the cost is currently far beyond our budget. Please know that we are making every effort to purchase essential MD Consult books and journals from other sources as they are available and affordable.
We recently purchased 10 of the most heavily used books on another online platform, R2 Digital Library. Many of the books can be found in the Library’s print collection. A library guide has been created to help users find alternative content. We have also subscribed to select journals via Science Direct. We will continue to make replacing this content a priority, however funding is limited.
The School of Medicine first acquired MD Consult in 1999. It was one of the earliest online resources for medical books and journals. Funding for this resource has always been a joint effort with costs being shared among some of the schools and, at one time, the regional Area Health Education Centers. For the last 10 years, funding has been provided by the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health, and the Library.
Thanks to everyone for your support of MD Consult over the past 15 years!
