eBooks-Reading and Using

Welcome! This guide will help you interact with the eBooks in DML's collection.

Exporting to a Reference Citation Manager

Most, if not all of the eBooks within either ClinicalKey eBooks or ClinicalKey Nursing will not be in any other Elsevier products such as Science Direct. In order to cite eBooks from the ClinicalKey/ ClinicalKey Nursing collection and import into the Reference Citation Management solution of your choice, please follow the steps below:

Begin by selecting a text either from the ClinicalKey or ClinicalKey Nursing collection, such as A Nurse's Survival Guide to Mentoring, and go to the DML catalog to search. At the bottom of the entry, please notice the "Permanent URL" button/icon. Select Permanent URL:

Find the needed book in the DML Catalog

You will be redirected to a page that has the direct URL to the text as well as an AMA citation at the top. At the bottom, please note the "Download for EndNote/RefMan/RefWorks/Mendeley" icon/button:

note the "Download for EndNote/RefMan/RefWorks/Mendeley" icon/button

Select the "download for EndNote/RefMan/RefWorks/Mendeley" icon/button and then the "Click Here" to download your .txt file format:

Select the download button to download the .txt file


Once complete, open the Reference Citation Manager of your choice and begin the process of manually importing your citation. Please note that the data source you need to select will be NLM/PubMed. Then, upload your .txt file to finish the process.

The selected citations will be sent to your selected reference citation manager for storage and management. For example, within RefWorks, you may utilize the bibliography functions of the platform to cite the eBook in your required format. For more information about using RefWorks see the Refworks Video Tutorials or help documents.
