NLM Traveling Exhibit on Global Health

The Medical Library is hosting the National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit 'Against the Odds: Making a Difference in Global Health' now through the end of August in the Kresge Library Lobby!

The exhibit examines global health from a historical perspective focusing on the topics of AIDS, food insecurity, violence, war, and community health. It focuses on the perspective of individuals, organizations, and countries working to improve the quality of care on an international scale.

Accompanying the traveling version is an online exhibit delving deeper into each topic area and featuring additional online activities and resources.

This exhibit is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.

Student Corner

Welcome (or Welcome Back)! Getting back into the swing of classes can be a challenge so here are just a few reminders about how the Medical Library can make things a little easier:
  • M1 Textbooks & M2 Textbooks Remember to visit our textbook pages on the website for a list of all the course textbooks, including required and recommended as well as which ones are available from the library electronically.
  • Course Resource Guides are available for most courses and serve as a one-stop shop for the essential resources. Each guide lists items such as textbooks, USMLE prep and review material, links to other supplementary eBooks and databases, as well as links to outside resources.
  • Library Hours Kresge Library is open 24/7 (excluding official University closings and holidays) including the Medical Library Collaborative and Quiet Study Rooms! Check out our expanded and newly renovated study spaces!
And, of course, your friendly neighborhood librarians are always here to help!

New Resource: ClinicalKey

The Medical Library recently purchased Elsevier's ClinicalKey database which provides access to over 1,000 eBooks, 500 eJournals, and hundreds of procedural videos. ClinicalKey will also eventually replace MDConsult as the main resource for Elsevier content.

ClinicalKey features a single search box that searches all content or you may browse individual sections including books (including many electronic versions of course textbooks), journals, practice guidelines, and multimedia.

The database is continually evolving to include new content and features! New features, including a mobile app, are expected this fall.
