Important changes to MEDLINE and PSYCINFO

In April the National Core Content is changing its supplier of the MEDLINE and PSYCINFO databases from Ovid to ProQuest.
The good news is that MEDLINE, PSYCINFO and a new collection of full text “PsycArticles” have already been added to ProQuest for us, and you don’t have to have any special searching skills to use them because ProQuest will automatically search these new resources together with our existing British Nursing Index and Hospital Collection. Go to our ProQuest page.

The bad news is that any searches you have saved on the Ovid versions of MEDLINE or PSYCINFO or in the NICE Evidence Healthcare Databases Advanced Search (HDAS) will be lost after March 30th, so please make sure you have saved anything that you want to keep by 8am on March 30th.
NICE has produced a help sheet – download it here.

Please ask us if you need further information or help with saving searches.
