  • Enter your Clinical Key account details - email address (watch there are no spaces at the end of it!) and password.
  • Go to the menu (the three lines in the top left corner) and tap Update Library to synchronise with your Bookshelf in the website.  You need to be connected to wifi or data to do this.
