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.

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.

New e-books!

The Library has recently purchased 10 new e-books on a variety of topics.

E-books can either be read online, or downloaded to your desktop (for a maximum of 7 days).

Links to e-books can be found from the Library Catalogue, or our selection of Topic Guides.

To access our 10 new titles, click on the title from the list below, and log in with NHS OpenAthens if prompted.

For more information about e-books, please visit our E-Books page.

If you have any problems accessing and using the e-books, please contact us.
