ClinicalKey Student (formerly ClinicalKey Medical Education / CKME) provides access to over 200 medical e-textbooks, thousands of images and many videos. In addition to a study tool feature that allows customers to annotate the text and make notes. It is available via ClinicalKey Student and also the Database AZ list

Access is available on and off campus. Customers 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 customers are asked to register on the ClinicalKey Student platform the first time they use it. Using their first name, last name and university email address to create a password. Subsequent visits will require customers to log into the ClinicalKey Student platform with these credentials. If using their own device they can select the “Remember Me” option to streamline the log in process. 

In order to access anything from Clinical Key customers would need to access the site through the Library Platform and not Google.

The ClinicalKey Student Study Tools app is available for both iOS and Android.

Customers 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.

Customers can also download an e-textbook to their device for offline use.  After 30 days the same title can be downloaded again. The download feature that allows users to read offline is currently only available on the mobile app. A desktop download feature is in development.

Elsevier provides a number of support videos and a Quick Reference Guide to assist customers which can be found below:
