Ovid: New Features to Discover and New Trial Databases to Explore

Ovid’s links to full text offers you unprecedented access to the wealth of authoritative information available free on the Web – all from within your database search session!  You can now link seamlessly from the bibliographic record in Medline or Cinahl to the corresponding full text article available free on the Internet through DOAJ, Highwire and PubMed Central.  You’ll now see links in Medline & Cinahl to over 600 journals like Annals of Family Medicine, Archives of Disease in Childhood, Cancer Research, Chest, and Circulation, just to name a few!  

Take the time to explore the two new databases that Brigg’s library will have access to on a trial basis until May 4, 2007.  The first database is the Lippincott Springhouse Nursing Collection which provides practical day-to-day reference guides such as Nettina:  Lippincott Manual of Nursing Practice and Carpenito:  Nursing Care Plans and Documentation, as well as reference for updating specialized clinical skills, such as Cardiac Nursing and Fluid and ELectrolyte Balance.  To access this database please visit the Featured and Trial Database page on the Briggs library main page.

The second database is the Ovid Nursing Collection I.  This 100% searchable full-text resource provides the user with information on the following topics:  Emergency Medicine & Trauma, Oncology, Education, Research & Theory, Anesthesiology, Management & Administration, Nurse Practitioner & Advanced Practice Nursing, Gerontology, Obstetrics & Women’s Health, Critical Care and Pediatric Nursing. 

I encourage you to take the time to visit the Featured and Trials Databases page to discover and explore the many new electronic resources on trial at Briggs library.  Please remember to complete the online form provided at the bottom of the page to give us your feedback on the resources we trial.  Your feedback will help us when we are considering new resources to add to our electronic collection.
