NEW! ClinicalKey to Replace MDConsult

MDConsult is being phased out and is being replaced by a new product called ClinicalKey.

In addition, FirstConsult and Vitals, point-of-care information for medicine and surgery, are included. The transition from MDConsult to ClinicalKey is underway, and will be completed by September 2014. The library currently has trial access to ClinicalKey. 

Just some of the books of interest available in ClinicalKey:

  • Cellular and Molecular Immunology
  • Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology
  • Emery's Elements of Medical Genetics
  • Miller's Anesthesia
  • Rang and Dale's Pharmacology

Mold FAQ and How You Can Help

FAQ Regarding Mold at Off-site Storage Facility

In October 2013, mold was discovered on books and bound journal volumes in one of MU Libraries' off-site storage facilities (UMLD2). This facility holds approximately 600,000 volumes belonging to the MU campus.

MU Libraries has established a Collection Enhancement Fund to assist our response to the mold damage. Your gift will be used to treat, relocate and in some cases, replace items impacted by mold. Our goal is to ensure the MU Libraries' ability to serve the needs of our users is not compromised by this sad event. A gift of any amount is greatly appreciated!

No one cares more than we do about preserving knowledge and scholarship. As we work through our response plan, know that we are making every effort to save items with special value and to retain ready access to information in the collection. 

If you would like to help us preserve this collection, click here to donate to our Collection Enhancement Fund.
