Goodbye MDConsult, Hello ClinicalKey

Some of you may already know that the publisher retired the popular resource MDConsult as of December 31, 2014. It has been replaced with a much more comprehensive tool called  Clinical Key. Ministry Health Care made the decision to add Clinical Key to our suite of databases and resources. 
Clinical Key can be accessed through the Library Intranet site (aka The Library without Walls), or our A-Z database list.   We will be working to add additional links via the EMRs and The Source.
Feel free to use this direct link Clinical Key.    If you click on an old MDConsult link now, it should redirect to Clinical Key.   
ClinicalKey’s offerings include:
·         over 500 journals
·         over 1000 textbooks
·         “FirstConsult” point-of-care clinical consults (similar to UptoDate)
·         Procedures Consult
·         Patient Education
·         Drug monographs from Clinical Pharmacology
·         over 13,000 medical and surgical videos
·         millions of images that may be added to presentations
·         over 2,000 practice guidelines

Free to a Good Home : 2011 AudioDigest CDs

The MMC  Library has 1 year's worth of      2011    AudioDigest CDs  available for FREE. Although these audioCDs are too old to apply for CE credits, they do still offer  excellent  information for Physicians, PAs, Nurses, and other health professionals.

Available Subject areas include the following  :
Emergency Medicine 
Family Practice (on tape  and CD )
General Surgery 
Internal Medicine
Obstetrics / Gynecology

Also available on Audio :
Journal Watch 
Practical Reviews in Radiology

Look for them on the  used  book sale table.     Come early.  These are HOT items!   

Too far from Mercy?  No sweat!   I'm  willing to inter-office a selection of  5-10  audio CDs anywhere within Affinity. 
Just tell  me  which series you're interested in.  

Due to challenges with inter-office mail delivery between regions, this offer is only for Affinity / East Region. 

Why are we giving them away?
--limited shelving space for audiovisuals
--CE credits are available only for 3 years since date of publication
--Our libraries emphasize the most up-to-date info, so we want to make room for more recent issues.
