ClinicalKey Errors

UPDATE: This appears to be resolved as of Thursday morning (3/20), 8:30 am. If you are still having problems, email Paul Gahn.

As of Wednesday afternoon, March 19, 2014, ClinicalKey may result in an “ajax timedout” error.

This is primarily an off-campus issue, but some of our links to ClinicalKey content are directed through a proxy server and may affect on-campus users as well.

This is due to an unannounced vendor upgrade.

You may be able to access content with this new proxy server still in beta: http://ezproxy.uthsc.edu/login?url=http://www.clinicalkey.com/.
However, if off-campus, you will need to add and/or acknowledge a security exception in your browser by clicking Continue and/or Accept. Also, if you have your directory entry suppressed, you will be denied access through the ezproxy link. We are still working on how to resolve that issue.


Health Sciences Library Better Aligns Collection With Campus Priorities

Over the last two years the Health Sciences Library has put a special emphasis on better aligning our collections and resources with campus priorities and the mission of the university.

Our Wiley pay-per-view service has increased access to biomedical journals by over 800 titles. AccessMedicine has added over 85 of the leading medical textbooks to our collection. ClinicalKey has also expanded our e-journal and e-book collections significantly. We have added the Joanna Briggs Institute – Evidence Based Practices collection, which is widely regarded as one of the world’s best collections of evidence–based information from across the globe.

Recently, we added nearly 350 e-book titles from the Doody’s Core Titles – Essentials collection for the health sciences. When we began this project we only had access to 26% of the titles in this collection, but when completed we will boast 95% access.
