Jan. 13, 2022: We recently noticed a change in ClinicalKey access for off-campus users. When you attempt to access content in ClinicalKey after logging in through OpenAthens, and using links on the library's webpages, or direct links to textbooks through our catalog and textbook lists, you may notice that you are unable to access content.

To get access to content, you will need to (1) log in again, either through OpenAthens or using a ClinicalKey Self-Managed Remote Access account. After logging in a second time, you should have access to the content. If ClinicalKey doesn't send you immediately to the textbook you were trying to access, try re-selecting the link from the library's webpage, library catalog or LibGuide.

(2) After you are logged in, you should see "MCW Libraries" in the top-left corner of the webpage.
