This message is to let all the NHS Athens users that from 1st April 2008 there will be a change in the access of the NHS electronic resources.
Firstly, you will no longer be able to search the databases via Dialog. There will be a new way to search all electronic content purchased nationally for the NHS. The new search engine, called Search 2.0, is currently being tested by NHS librarians. It will be the main discovery tool to locate articles from the following primary databases:
* Alternative and Complementary Medicine Database
* British Nursing Index
* Health Management Information Consortium (HMIC)
It is designed to simplify searching by ending reliance on different supplier systems to access resources. The planned national launch date is 1 April 2008 and there will be a two month overlap between the Dialog databases (except Cinahl) and Search 2.0 during this transitional period.
Please note that your saved searches and alerts will not be transferred over from Dialog, and it is therefore your responsibility to record these now so that you can re-create them in the new system.
NLH Search 2.0 will be accessible from the National Library for Health website at: www.library.nhs.uk and also by clicking the National Library for Health link in the Resources list within MyAthens.
This new searching experience will be structured around a series of collections within the National Library for Health, including:
* Specialist Libraries
* Books, Journals and Bibliographic Databases
* For Patients
NLH Search 2.0 Resource Guides are available at http://www.library.nhs.uk/forlibrarians/toolkits.
MyJournals, the A-Z list of NHS journals, will remain as the one-stop-shop for locating NHS electronic journal content. From the 1st April the site should reflect changes to journal content so as to include:
10 JAMA and Archive Journals titles
590 healthcare titles via Cinahl Full Text (Provided by EbscoHOST Database)
26 BMJ titles
In time links will appear to articles in these collections from citations in your search results in the Search 2.0 interface. Please also note that the MyJournals service contains links to paper holdings held by your local healthcare library.
Additional journal content may be available from April onwards and negotiations are currently taking place.
You will be able to get help in using NLH Search 2.0 from the library. We also welcome your feedback on NLH Search 2.0 - everything you tell us will help us to refine and develop our services for you. For more information do not hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
The National Library for Health will continue to provide users with access to high quality news analysis via the Behind the Headlines service provided by NHS Choices: http://www.nhs.uk/News/Pages/NewsIndex.aspx. This service will be available on the NLH homepage as of 1st April 2008. In addition to this, the searchable Hitting the Headlines archive will be retained: http://www.library.nhs.uk/rss/newsAndRssArchive.aspx?storyCategory=0
Behind the Headlines provides an unbiased and evidence-based analysis of health stories that make the news on a daily basis and from 1 April will work to the standards developed by the Hitting the Headlines to enhance their service even further.
