From 1st April, there will be a number of changes to the national core e-resources content which is available to all NHS staff, funded by HEE.

What’s going?

CINAHL Plus with full-text
This will be replaced by CINAHL index database, which will be searchable via HDAS or the native EBSCO interface.

Any searches you’ve saved in HDAS that used this database will automatically be changed on the 01 April so that they use the CINAHL index.

For saved searches in the EBSCO native interface you will need to manually migrate any searches you want to re-use to the CINAHL index database. This can be done by editing the search from your folder in the native interface, selecting the CINAHL Index database and saving the search.

Please don’t forget, we now have access to a number of core nursing journals via MAG Online Library, including British Journal of Nursing. For more details, see our previous post.

Health Business Elite (being decommissioned Friday 29th March)

Any searches you’ve saved in HDAS that used this database will automatically be changed on the 01 April so that they use the CINAHL index.

For saved searches in the EBCO native interface you will need to manually migrate any searches you want to re-use to the CINAHL index database. This can be done by editing the search from your folder in the native interface, selecting the CINAHL Index database and saving the search.

Links to full text articles from CINAHL Plus with Full Text and HBE

Full text journal content that was accessible within these databases will not be available. Links in HDAS saved results won’t show, and where links have been exported from HDAS – for example into current awareness bulletins – these will result in an error unless you have another route of access to the journal, such as a local subscription to the relevant journal title, the title is available in an alternative NCC full text collection or is Open Access.

What’s new?

There will be a number of resources available to you from 1st April:

Emcare
Nursing and allied health database – will be searchable via HDAS and Ovid interfaces.

BMJ Best Practice
Point of care tool guidance on diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention using evidence-based methodology and expert opinion.

EBSCO’s Psychology & Behavioral Sciences full-text collection
Database for psychologists, counsellors, researchers and students, plus full-text access to hundreds of psychology journals.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact the Library.

RD&E Online Journal Club – coming soon

Trust Journal Club – Community services pilot

Launching in November 2018 will be an online Facebook journal club to support staff with participatory continued professional development as part of the revalidation requirements by enabling online discussion and reflection; this is a pilot within community services but will be rolled out to other areas if successful.

The Facebook page is a closed group which you will have to request to join; using this format allows staff to access discussion and content whenever convenient.

Each month an article will be posted, staff can read this article either contributing to existing conversations or start their own by adding comment below as they would on any other Facebook post.

A reflective template has also been created with staff can download to use as evidence is their revalidation portfolio.

To find the group search for ‘RD&E Online Journal Club’ in the Groups category, request to join and you will be asked two questions, your job role and place of work.

If there is a particular subject or article that you would like to be posted you can message the Facebook page with your suggestion.

For more information, contact Emma Watson, Clinical Skills Facilitator.

New Cochrane Library website – launch on Tuesday 07August

The Cochrane Library has been redesigned to enhance user experience – it consistently provides the dependable, high standard evidence which informs healthcare decision-making. It will launch on Tuesday 7th August 2018.

Do take a look and visit the new site – cochranelibrary.com to view the changes and new features. Access is via NHS Open Athens – so sign up if you haven’t already – https://openathens.nice.org.uk

They do warn – “To ensure the transition from old to new site runs smoothly, we strongly recommend not using the saved search function from 00:01 GMT on Monday 6th August 2018 until 23:59 GMT on Tuesday 7th August. We cannot guarantee that any searches saved during this period will be transferred to the new site. All other search functions in the Cochrane Library will remain available during this time. The transfer of all saved searches will take place between 6-7th August, with no action required on the part of users. If you have any problems contact cs-cochrane@wiley.com and specify that you are a saved search user.”

Document supply price increase

From 1st August, our document supply charge will be rising to £15 per item.
This is in line with price increases from the British Library, and more locally, the University of Exeter.

Please note that document supply is FREE for Trust or clinical related work.
Charges only apply if the items are required for funded research projects, or educational courses.

For more information, and a copy of our policy, see our Document Supply web page.

BMJ Case Reports

BMJ Case Reports will not be renewed for 2018/19 – the subscription officially ended yesterday.

Please contact me at either pamela.geldenhuys@nhs.net or p.r.geldenhuys@exeter.ac.uk if there are any queries.

Usage has been very low and it was therefore considered not cost effective to renew.

Exeter Health Library Topic Guides – can you help?

Exeter Health Library is running a usability study in conjunction with the healthcare library at Weston Super-Mare, looking at the usability of our Topic Guides: http://exeterhealth.libguides.com.

If you haven’t already come across them, we have a wide range of Topic Guides covering a number of different subjects, from clinical topics, to guides on the Care Certificate, Research, Leadership & Management and more. Each guide pulls together information on library resources and services available for that topic.

Both Weston and ourselves use the same software (LibGuides) and we’d like to make sure that our Topic Guides are fit for purpose and actually useful! Results will be anonymised and presented as a poster at the national CILIP Health Libraries Group conference this summer.

Are you able to spare 15 mins to pop over to the Library to help us? Tea/coffee/biscuits will be provided. There will be a short set of simple tasks to complete, and some follow up questions, if there is time.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Cate Newell (Reader Services Librarian) on x6726, or email cnewell1@nhs.net. The deadline is Friday 18th May.
