The University has ClinicalKey Medical Education on trial until 30th June. 

This resource provides access to 18 medical e-textbooks already available in Elsevier eLibrary, but the new resource has more titles and an enhanced user experience. ClinicalKey Medical Education is available here, and also via the Database AZ list and under the Service Announcements on the Library HomepageThere are over 200 medical e-textbooks, thousands of images and many videos, in addition to a study tool feature that allows users to annotate the text and make notes. They can also download an e-textbook to their device for offline use. The download will last for 30 days during this trial. When the 30 days expires, the user can download the same title again. Please note that the download feature that allows users to read offline is currently only available on the mobile app. A desktop download feature is in development.

Access is available on and off campus. Users off campus will need to log in with their University username and password. There is a secondary layer of authentication both on and off campus, whereby users are asked to register on the CKME platform the first time they use it, with their first name, last name, University email address and to create a password. Subsequent visits will require users to log into the CKME platform with these credentials. If using their own device they can select the “Remember Me” option to streamline the log in process. 

The ClinicalKey Medical Education Study Tools app is available for both iOS and Android.
Users need to register on the browser based platform before using the app. Books they are interested in must be placed on their bookshelf via the browser platform before they can access the book on the app.
Elsevier provides a number of support videos and a Quick Reference Guide to assist users which can be found below: The library is keen to receive feedback from students and other library patrons during and after the trail phase of this resource.
