MD Consult and Clinical Key Temporarily Deactivated

MD Consult and Clinical Key were inadvertently deactivated on Aug. 29th. We are working on bringing them back up.

Please keep checking our database list for MD Consult and the Clinical Key trial link on our library website banner in the event it activates over this weekend.

We are in the process of licensing Clinical Key and then fully incorporating it into the library catalog and database list. Meanwhile, please stand by while we restore the CK trial and MD Consult access.

We apologize for this inconvenience.
