Online books, journals, and so much more…

PsychiatryOnline is so much more than the DSM-5! Its e-books cover mental health from childhood to late life. It also contains journals such as the influential American Journal of Psychiatry.

ClinicalKey’s search interface can help to quickly pinpoint clinically relevant information. Entries from FirstConsult and Ferri’s Clinical Advisor are given priority in the search results. For less common disorders or complex queries, ClinicalKey draws on its extensive collection of journal articles and book chapters.
