In follow up to our previous announcement regarding ClinicalKey, the W.K. Kellogg Health Sciences Library has cancelled ClinicalKey. Thank you to all who provided feedback.
The last day to access ClinicalKey will be May 31, 2016.
ClinicalKey has two main components: journals and ebooks. About 90 per cent of the journals included in ClinicalKey are duplicates of titles the Dal Libraries already subscribe to in another Elsevier package. A portion of the funds saved by cancelling the ClinicalKey subscription will be used to purchase replacement ebooks, phased in over two budget years.
Over the next six weeks, liaison librarians will review titles identified as most relevant to the curricula in consultation with faculty. The Resources team will then purchase replacement ebooks and, in a few cases, print books.
