The library monitors the use patterns and cost per use of all subscribed journals. We also accept requests for new resources throughout the year and analyze these requests in the Fall to see if we can cancel high cost per use/low use items and replace them with the most highly requested resources.
Below are the changes that have come out of this year’s analysis. All new titles will be available in 2013 through the library catalog, the Online Journals A-Z list, and through the GetIt! And Check here for full text buttons. Cancelled items are only an interlibrary loan away.

The library has been longtime subscribers of MDConsult, FirstConsult, and Procedures Consult. Elsevier has now combined these three Consults into one product : Clinical Key. Clinical Key incorporates the best of the Consult resources and adds functionality and content on top of them. Its aim is to be a complete Clinical Information Tool. It features a single search box interface in addition to providing easy links to ebooks, ejournals, and procedures. The purchase of Clinical Key adds several hundred ebooks and ejournals to the library’s collection. Subscriptions to MD and Procedures Consult will be discontinued as of January 1 2013. The First Consult gateway will remain the same, though results will also be available via Clinical Key.
An individual login in the top right corner of the screen is required to access the PDFs of ebooks, to add items to your Reading List, or to download items for use in presentations. UNMC users can access Clinical Key through the link on the library’s home page and authenticate through UNMC’s servers, but access to these extra functions requires an additional personal login. If you previously had an MDConsult username and password, your account should work.
