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.
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 email@example.com and specify that you are a saved search user.”
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 will not be renewed for 2018/19 – the subscription officially ended yesterday.
Please contact me at either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if there are any queries.
Usage has been very low and it was therefore considered not cost effective to renew.
We have been made aware there may be some problems with access to journals and databases and account renewals.
If you are affected, please let us know – ring us on 01392 406800 or email us at
firstname.lastname@example.org and we will investigate.
We are pleased to announce we now have electronic access to the Journal of Neonatal Nursing from Jan 2014 onwards – https://bit.ly/2Gaukpx
It is also available in print from January 2018.
Please feel free to contact the library if you have any issues accessing this title.
23 March 2018
The contents of the DPT Library at Wonford House Hospital will now remain permanently in Exeter Health Library.
Book items will still show as ‘Wonford House Hosp Library (NHS)’ in the Library Catalogue, but they are currently in Exeter Health Library.
The collection is shelved at the end of the Exeter Health Library book and journal collection, it is clearly signposted.
Exeter Health Library is staffed Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, with 24/7 access available to registered users. Books can be borrowed either with an Exeter Health Library library card (if you have one), or by writing your name on the book card inside the book, and posting it in the red box on the wall by the library enquiries desk.
If you have any problems accessing the DPT Library collection, or would like to have books posted out to your department, please contact Library staff.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
