ClinicalKey February 2019 Updates

Strauss library will have a new ongoing series featuring the newly added and deleted ebooks for ClinicalKey each month. The library has a subscription to all the ebooks in ClinicalKey, unlike with other ebooks, which are purchased individually.

Because the ClinicalKey ebooks are a subscription service similar to journal packages, Strauss library receives all new ebooks, and removes all deleted titles with the monthly update.

Check out the new ebooks that have been added, and this update will let our users know about the ebooks deleted that will no longer be available. If you need to request access to a deleted ebook, please submit a request here.

Mountain Scholar is in DPLA!

Strauss library’s digital repository, Mountain Scholar, has become part of Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)!

The staff at Strauss library have been working with their colleagues in Mountain Scholar and representatives from DPLA to upload specified parts of the digital repository into the DPLA collections.

DPLA is an online collection of digital archives from libraries, archives, and museums around the country, freely available on the internet.

DPLA requested historical collections from Mountain Scholar, and the Mountain Scholar group voted to go forward and add items from the Mountain Scholar member libraries’ collections to DPLA.

The Strauss library staff chose the historical collections from Mountain Scholar to upload, and the months of work have paid off! You can now view the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Strauss Health Sciences Library collection in DPLA!

The University of Colorado Anschutz is listed under the Plains to Peaks Collective partnership, and you can see Strauss library in the Contributing Institution list.

New URL for Search HSL

Search HSL logoThe Search HSL discovery system URL has changed from 


Search HSL serves as the library’s catalog as well as discovery system, providing one-stop searching for journal articles, books and e-books, videos, anatomical models and more. It is also the linking system (aka OpenURL resolver) for CU Anschutz users who may be using citation databases (like Pubmed) to get to the full text of journal articles from publishers such as ScienceDirect and NEJM.

Links on the library home page to Search HSL  have already been changed, but if you have bookmarks or third party applications that may be using the old URL, be sure to get it changed. The old URL will still work for a short period of time however, starting Saturday Jan. 10 it may begin to be more difficult to use due to an expiring SSL certificate.
