Temporary known issues: Elsevier's ClinicalKey and ClinicalKey Nursing are experiencing authentication issues. You will not be able to get full text from links in SALUS or from our Databases to fulltext articles, BUT you can use the quick links above for CK and CKN to get to fulltext articles in an HTML format.
