ClinicalKey’s Spring 2023 Content Updates

ClinicalKey recently released a large batch of “Spring 2023” content updates (for March, April, and May). Content updates typically occur monthly, so this was a larger than usual batch. The full list is currently available via the “Get News and Updates” section on the ClinicalKey home page. Here are some highlights among the newly added e-books:

  • Avery’s Diseases of the Newborn, 11th edition
  • Basic Immunology, 7th edition
  • Berne & Levy Physiology, 8th edition
  • Elsevier’s 2024 Intravenous Medications, 40th edition (Note: past editions were titled “Gahart’s Intravenous Medications”)
  • Harriet Lane Handbook, 23rd edition
  • Little and Falace’s Dental Management of the Medically Compromised Patient, 10th edition
  • Plotkin’s Vaccines, 8th edition

If you need to print or download a chapter PDF from a ClinicalKey e-book, you must log into ClinicalKey with your Elsevier personal account. (E-journal article and e-book chapter PDFs that you print or download from ClinicalKey are for your own personal use and may not be shared with others.) To create an account, click the Register link in the upper right, from a computer/device connected to the Pitt or UPMC network. Note that ClinicalKey does not make chapter PDFs available for some e-books, typically those that are used in health sciences education.

ClinicalKey’s Spring update also added about a dozen e-journals, which have already been available via ScienceDirect. A number of health sciences e-journals published by Elsevier are available via both ClinicalKey and ScienceDirect (which often provides deeper full-text access), but others are available on only one platform or the other. Please check PittCat or HSLS’s E-Journals A-Z list to find particular titles of interest, including by subject area.

ClinicalKey offers more than just e-books and e-journals. Check out the other content that is available, including:

  • Clinical Overviews (point-of-care clinical topic summaries)
  • Procedures Consult (procedure videos)
  • Clinical Calculators (to support clinical decision-making)
  • Drug Monographs (from Gold Standard)
  • Clinical Trials (from the database)
  • Practice Guidelines (from leading organizations)
  • And more
