  • MD Consult Discontinued

    As of January 1, 2015, MD Consult has been discontinued by its producer, Elsevier, and is no longer available at UCSF or any of the University of California campuses. MD Consult was a popular online resource containing the full text of medical books, journals, and review articles from the Clinics of North America series. Elsevier replaced MD Consult with a much broader and more expensive product, ClinicalKey. This product would have cost UCSF almost double in 2015 and therefore the Library is unable to license it.
