Database changes

By Anna Di Iorio, on 8 September 2008

OvidSP (Copyright © 2000-2008 Ovid Technologies, Inc.)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:

  • AMED
  • Biotechnology Abstracts  
  • HMIC
  • Medline
  • PsycInfo

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.
