ClinicalKey app

ClinialKey is mobile friendly - no app is necessary. If your mobile device/browser supports HTML, cookies, and JavaScript, you can use the library's links to ClinicalKey from the web browser on your mobile device. You will still need a WiFi connection to use the app. The content does not download to your device. If you access ClinicalKey from your browser. you don't have the extra steps of creating an account and having to re-authenticate.

However, if you prefer the app: 

Step 1: Register for a personal account.

If you have already created a personal account in another Elsevier product, like Scopus or Clinical Pharmacology, then you do not need to register again.  When registering for an account, you may use your DMU email if you prefer but please do not use the same password you use to log into D2L etc.

Step 2: Now that you have a personal account, follow the first page of the handout: " For Institutional Users with a User Profile/Personal Account."

Please note, You will have only 60 minutes to respond to the validation email though so make sure you complete this process immediately!

Step 3: After you create an account and validate your DMU email, download the ClinicalKey app.
