ClinicalKey Remote Access

1.) First, you must register with ClinicalKey while using a Dignity Health network computer and using your Dignity Health email.  Register at the top right corner of their home page and create an account while on a Dignity Health network PC (on campus). 
2.) Once your account is created, you can go to ClinicalKey's website from a home PC and login.  Once you are logged in, click on the profile icon in the top right corner. Then click on “Remote Access.”
3.) Insert your Dignity Health email to request remote access. 
4.) Select “Dignity Health - Remote Access.” 
5.) Check your Dignity Health email on the same device you intend to access ClinicalKey and there should be an email from ClinicalKey to activate your remote access. You have to initiate a separate email and follow this process over again for each device you intend to access ClinicalKey with. 
6.) The link from your email should open up ClinicalKey and give you access to the books and journals. 

Getting to Full Text Articles: Tips and Tricks


  • The A to Z List of Online Titles link is the best place to see whether or not we have online access to the full text of a particular journal. 
  • The PubMed Single Citation Matcher is a great tool for searching, verifying, or finding articles.  This is also a great place to start looking for an article if you have an incomplete citation.  Simply fill in the information that you have in the appropriate boxes provided by the Single Citation MatcherPubMed will display the article or articles that resulted from your search.
  • PubMed may provide a link to the full text, but PubMed does not always provide the proper access link.  Use the A to Z List of Online Titles link to be sure that you are using the proper full text access links to the journals that we subscribe to. 
  • Many of our Elsevier journals can be found on ClinicalKey.  If you are trying to get to an article that was published in an Elsevier journal, check the ClinicalKey database.
  • Ovid (Wolters Kluwer/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins) content does not link out directly from PubMed.  Journals published by Ovid/LWW require that we first go to the A to Z List of Online Titles and login using our Athens username and password to access their journals.
