New HSL Databases and Online Journals for 2013

Posted on: |

Abbott-stairviewThe Health Sciences Library is pleased to report that, with a somewhat larger budget allocation this year, we have been able to add two important new databases and 28 new journals that had either been requested by faculty to support their research or had been requested frequently on inter-library loan.  We were also able to change most of the few remaining print journal subscriptions in our collections to 21 new online electronic journal licenses for the entire University.  Below is a complete list of these new resources, including a more detailed description of the two databases.


  • New Databases Added

Clinical Key

Produced by Elsevier, ClinicalKey is a search engine and database of peer-reviewed and evidence-based clinical information resources designed to support physician and nursing patient care decisions. The database is greatly expanded and upgraded replacement for MD Consult and First Consult. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is provided through the Cleveland Clinic. ClinicalKey information resources include the full text of over 1,000 Elsevier medical and surgical reference books, 500 journals, 2,800 drug monographs, 2,000 practice guidelines, 15,000 patient education handouts, 13,000 medical and surgical videos, and 5 million images. The search engine quickly filters relevant content from all these information resources to support patient care decision making.

Springer Protocols

Produced by Springer Science & Business Media, Springer Protocols is the “world’s largest” collection of reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences. The database includes the protocols from all volumes of Methods in Molecular Biology and other Springer “Methods in . . .” series, the Springer Protocols Handbooks (e.g. Protein Protocols Handbook), as well as other sources, for a total of over 31,000 protocols. Approximately 2,000 new protocols are added each year. New content is added daily. The database is browse-able in 15 broad subject collections (Cell Biology, Genetics/Genomics, Protein Sciences, Biochemistry, Neurosciences, Immunology, Molecular Medicine, Microbiology, Plant Sciences, Cancer Research, Pharmacology/Toxicology, Infectious Diseases, Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, and Imaging/Radiology) or searchable by keyword, author, year of publication, and the original journal or book source. In addition to text protocols with illustrations, the database also includes a small, but growing collection of video protocols produced in collaboration with the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JOVE). Users can create personal accounts in the database to enable new protocol alerts, RSS feeds, exporting and uploading protocols, and adding personal comments about individual protocols into the database.
