The OvidSP multi-field search option does not work properly if you select ‘Author(s)’ and only enter the author’s surname.
To do a multi-field search for an author regardless of first names or initials, you need to enter the author’s last name followed by a space and then the truncation symbol $.
Currently, the truncation symbol * does not work when you enter it after a space, but should work in future.
Searching for the author ‘smith $’ in the multi-field search mode will retrieve any authors with surname smith, smithus, smithwick etc., regardless of first names or initials.
We are aware of the fact that many users are accustomed to surname-only searching and have passed the information to OvidSP, so this may change in future.
A number of the bibliographic databases to which Library Services subscribes have moved to a new interface, OvidSP, from 28 August. The databases involved include:
- Biotechnology Abstracts
The links in the Library’s database list have been updated.
Users are advised to update any personal bookmarks they may have for these databases, as the old access routes will be switched off on 30 September.
Saved searches will not be transferred automatically – they must be recreated on the new platform. To view your saved searches in the old interface, go to http://erl-server.ucl.ac.uk for all databases except PsycInfo, which can be found at the ARC2 service.
If you have any queries about searching the databases in their new form, please email me or ask at an Enquiry Desk.
