The LSUHSC Libraries have implemented changes link removed in search systems and databases. Some changes were effective July 1, 2003. Others will be effective August 1, 2003. These changes were made by LOUIS, a library consortium of Louisiana college and university libraries. As a result, some databases were added; others changed suppliers, and a few were eliminated and replaced by comparable products.
With these changes, the library added ten new databases. Of particular interest to library patrons are two in the health sciences: Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition and Nursing and Allied Health Collection: Comprehensive Edition. Both databases contain important electronic journal content.
On August 1, 2003, the Ovid menu will change. The following databases will be offered:
The following databases will be deleted from the Ovid menu but accessible from the Additional Search Systems and Databases link removed link on the Library's homepage: Biological Abstracts (from EBSCO), Dissertation Abstracts (from Proquest), ERIC (from EBSCO), and PsycINFO (from EBSCO).
