MDConsult access expired February 28thMarch 5th, 2014 by Laura Schlueter
MDConsult access ended in 2014 for all its subscribers, and here at Upstate, on February 28th. MDConsult is being replaced with Elsevier’s next generation clinical and curriculum resource, Clinical Key. The Health Sciences Library will not be subscribing to this product to due its very high cost of licensure.
Our goal is to retain as much of the book and journal content as possible on other platforms, please consult our libguide for alternative resources http://upstate.libguides.com/content.php?hs=a&pid=568272. Access to several of the e-book titles are available through other e-book vendors, and the Library already had institutional subscriptions to many of the journals contained within MDConsult. Access to several of the most heavily-used journals will still be available through links in the Journals A-Z list and the New York State Library. We are investigating licensure of the Clinics – however articles from our print subscriptions are available for scanning and delivery via ILLiad request.
Please take a moment to complete a 2 question survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/52RJRR7 and make recommendations for ebook and clinic titles.

PsychiatryOnline.org Monthly Feature: Handbook of Correctional Mental HealthMarch 5th, 2014 by Laura Schlueter
PsychiatryOnline Book of the Month: March
Handbook of Correctional Mental Health, Second Edition
Edited by Charles L. Scott, M.D.
Clinicians who work on the frontlines of correctional mental health know that the challenges are only increasing. Not only is the proportion of inmates with mental disorders growing at a rate that exceeds that of the correctional population as a whole, but this group is expanding at both ends of the aging continuum, so that increasing numbers of both geriatric and juvenile offenders require assessment and treatment. Changing patient demographics and evolving treatment modalities make it essential that psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other professionals who serve the prison population have access to the most practical, up-to-date, and comprehensive resource. Handbook of Correctional Mental Health, now in an expanded, second edition, is that resource.
This book addresses key concepts to ensure that the reader meets the current standard of care for inmates through all phases of the criminal justice system. In 20 state-of-the-art chapters, nationally recognized providers and correctional mental health experts address the most pressing issues facing clinicians. The new edition of Handbook of Correctional Mental Health includes everything mental health professionals need to provide the highest standard of care to this growing—and complex—patient population.
You can access the Book of the Month from the PsychiatryOnline.org homepage, scroll to the bottom of the page to find Book of the Month. From the Health Sciences Library website select Find Articles> Databases> and search PsyhchiatryOnline.
You’ll have access to Handbook of Correctional Mental Health, Second Edition as a PDF download for the month of March.
