The Medical Library’s subscription to ClinicalKey includes access to Procedures Consult, a procedural reference tool providing details on how to prepare for, perform and follow up on the most common procedures.
Procedures Consult covers the procedures required by the ABIM (American Board of Internal Medicine) and conforms to ACGME standards.
After performing a search in ClinicalKey, a list of content types will appear on the left side of the screen. Click the box next to Procedures Consult to select and view those items. Searching the word “Procedures” will retrieve all Procedures Consult items.
ClinicalKey is currently linked on the list of Databases on the Library’s home page.
JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, is a peer reviewed scientific video journal. By presenting scientific research in a visual format, JoVE aims to help researchers learn new experimental techniques and improve reproducibility of results. Currently, the journal has 9 different sections. The Medical Library has a subscription to the JoVE General section with access back to 2006. Articles in other sections are available in PMC (PubMedCentral) after a 24 month delay or embargo period, although some are available sooner.

JoVE articles will also be included in PubMed search results. However, note that you will only be able to access articles that are in the General section or are past the embargo period.
The Medical Library now has a new site license to ClinicalKey (CK). CK is replacing MD Consult, which is no longer being developed by the vendor.
ClnicalKey provides vastly more content than MDConsult. Whereas MD Consult had approximately 50 e-books and 50 e-journals, ClinicalKey has over 1,000 e-books and over 1,000 e-journals.
In addition, CK has over 13,000 procedural videos and FirstConsult point-of-care monographs. ClinicalKey is linked on the Library’s Web page, and the link there will also facilitate off-campus access via your siumed.edu log-in. CK is optimized for mobile devices such as tablets and smart phones.
The ClinicalKey e-journals are also available through the Library’s A-Z list.
When using CK you will encounter a main search bar. Enter the term you wish to search or use the AutoSuggest feature to select a term. On the left hand side, you can filter the search results by content type (e.g., books, images, video).
Once you select content, the left hand side will show an outline or table of contents. The center panel will include the full-text.
