LATEST UPDATE: The trial access has been further extended and is now available through the month of October too.

We have managed to secure trial access to Clinical Key for BMA members.

Clinical Key provides access to the full text of the latest editions of hundreds of medical e-books published by Elsevier.

Clinical Key also provides full text access to a large number of e-journals and other key online medical resources produced by Elsevier.

Please use the following link for direct access to the trial:
https://www-clinicalkey-com.authproxy.bma.org.uk

All of the Elsevier e-books that we previously had access to on Dawsonera have now had their linking updated in our online catalogue to connect directly with the version available on Clinical Key.

If you have any queries about our trial access to Clinical Key please email: e-books@bma.org.uk

About half of all of our e-books (approx. 1,400) are hosted on the Dawsonera platform.
Bertram Books, the owner of Dawsonera, went into administration on 19th June.
The administrators have indicated that they will switch off the Dawsonera platform on Friday 31st July.
When this happens the access to our e-books on the Dawsonera platform will stop working.

We are in the process of getting access set up to the affected titles on several other e-book platforms.
As access is successfully set up on each of the new platforms sets of titles will once again become available to access via our online catalogue.

Please visit our blog (bmalibrary.blog) for the latest updates on our progress.
