Physicians & Providers: Welcome to Ascension Library Services – Library Resources to Make Your Work Life Easier

Dear AW Physicians & Providers:

Welcome to Ascension Wisconsin Library Services!


Michele Matucheski, MLS, AHIP  and Kellee Selden, MLIS, MSMI

We are your Medical Librarians for Ascension Wisconsin.   

Allow us to give you a tour of Library Services.


Ascension Wisconsin Library Services Home  [Use Chrome]

Feel free to add this link to your Favorites/Bookmarks.  This website offers the same content statewide.  

  • You will find our contact info under the Contact Your Librarians tab.
  • If you use the PubMed links on our library pages, it will tap into our full-text offerings.  
  • Get Articles! If you can’t get to a full-text article, send me or Kellee the citations and we’ll get them for you.  We have connections all the way up to the National Library of Medicine, and it won’t cost you a thing.  Feel free to email citations to us, or use our Request Forms.
  • Expert Literature Searches.  We are also available to search the databases on your behalf, if you don't have time or are not comfortable searching them yourself.  Just tell us what you're looking for and we'll return relevant search results with links to fulltext articles whenever possible.  Request Forms.
  • Using the AW Library Website

We offer a New Issue Alerts / eTOC current awareness service so you can keep up with your favorite professional eJournals.  Just let me know what titles you’re interested in.  For each new issue, you’ll get an email with links to the current full-text articles.  

Clinical References - Physician & Provider ToolBox – a LibGuide filled with tools and sources that will be most helpful to a busy Physician, including  sources for point-of-care, drug info, diagnosis tools, access to over 1400 eBooks, full-text articles, patient education, and more.     You may want to consider adding this page to your Favorites/Bookmarks as well. 

DynaMed is a physician point-of-care reference tool offering answers to clinical questions.  Content is written by a team of physicians and researchers who synthesize the evidence and provide objective analysis.  It offers clinically organized summaries for more than 3,200 topics.   Also includes drug info.   See also: The DynaMed Search Tips page.

Lexicomp Clinical Drug Reference

              Dosing info, interactions, etc.  

              LexiComp Search Tips - Includes info about the mobile app.  


Clinical Key (CK) with Clinical Overviews and Procedures Consult

There’s also a Search Tips Page for Clinical Key, filled with useful articles, tutorials and videos to help you get the most out of it. 

                Clinical Overviews are similar to UptoDate, by offering review articles on 1400 primary care topics, including current evidence, treatment and dosing info, and more.

                ProceduresConsult is like YouTube for Medicine.  It’s great if you need to review a procedure before you have to do it.  It provides a web video, along with a complete write-up of the procedure, including coding info.

                Clinical Key includes 1100+ medical eBooks, and 500+ eJournals. 

Here is a sample of some of the specialty content from CK
