      OVID Health Sciences Resources

      Availability: 
      Description: 

      The OVID products include CINAHL, Medline, Evidence Based Medicine Reviews (including the Cochrane databases), HealthSTAR, 8 reference/text e-books, and the 75 e-journals that make up the OVID Nursing Collection II.

      The Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health (CINAHL) database provides authoritative coverage of the literature related to nursing and allied health. Virtually all English-language publications are indexed along with the publications of the American Nurses Association and the National League for Nursing. Selected journals are also indexed in the areas of consumer health, biomedicine, and health sciences librarianship. In total, more than 1600 journals are regularly indexed; online abstracts are available for more than 1500 of these titles. There are more than 18,000 records with full text now included. The database also provides access to healthcare books, nursing dissertations, selected conference proceedings, standards of professional practice, educational software and audiovisual materials in nursing. More than 11,000 CINAHL subject headings provide specific access to CINAHL citations. Many CINAHL headings are adopted from the National Library of Medicine’s Medical Subject Headings. CINAHL supplements these headings with terms designed specifically for nursing and allied health.

      Produced by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the MEDLINE database is widely recognized as the premier source for bibliographic and abstract coverage of biomedical literature. MEDLINE encompasses information from Index Medicus, Index to Dental Literature, and International Nursing, as well as other sources of coverage in the areas of allied health, biological and physical sciences, humanities and information science as they relate to medicine and health care, communication disorders, population biology, and reproductive biology. More than 12 million records from more than 3,900 journals are indexed, plus records formally indexed in Healthstar, Bioethicsline and Aidsline. Abstracts are included for about 75% of the records.

      Ovid HealthSTAR is comprised of data from the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) MEDLINE and former HealthSTAR databases. As such, it contains citations to the published literature on health services, technology, administration, and research. It focuses on both the clinical and non-clinical aspects of health care delivery. The following topics are included: evaluation of patient outcomes; effectiveness of procedures, programs, products, services and processes; administration and planning of health facilities, services and manpower; health insurance; health policy; health services research; health economics and financial management; laws and regulation; personnel administration; quality assurance; licensure; and accreditation.

      Evidence Based Medical Reviews helps clinicians to find the best answer to clinical questions in the least amount of time. There are 4 databases:

      • The editors of ACP Journal Club screen the top clinical journals on a regular basis and identify studies that are both methodologically sound and clinically relevant. They write an enhanced abstract of the chosen articles and provide a commentary on the value of the article for clinical practice.
      • The Cochrane Controled Trials Register (CCTR) is a bibliographic database of definitive controlled trials. These controlled trials have been identified by the distinguished contributors to the Cochrane Collaboration. They and others, as part of an international effort to search the world's health care journals (and other sources of information) systematically, have combined results to create an unbiased source of data for systematic reviews. CCTR contains over 300,000 bibliographic references to controlled trials in health care.
      • The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (COCH) includes the full text of the regularly updated systematic reviews of the effects of healthcare prepared by The Cochrane Collaboration.
      • the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effectiveness (DARE) is a full text database containing critical assessments of systematic reviews from a variety of medical journals. DARE is produced by the expert reviewers and information staff of the National Health Services' Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (NHS CRD) at the University of York, England, and consists of structured abstracts of systematic reviews from all over the world. DARE records cover topics such as diagnosis, prevention, rehabilitation, screening, and treatment.

      The e-books are important Nursing reference resources.

      OED Online

      Availability: 
      Resource Type: 
      Description: 

      The Oxford English Dictionary is the accepted authority on the evolution of the English language over the last millennium. It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over half a million words, both present and past. It traces the usage of words through 2.5 million quotations from a wide range of international English language sources, from classic literature and specialist periodicals to film scripts and cookery books.

      The OED covers words from across the English-speaking world, from North America to South Africa, from Australia and New Zealand to the Caribbean. It also offers the best in etymological analysis and in listing of variant spellings, and it shows pronunciation using the International Phonetic Alphabet.

      As the OED is a historical dictionary, its entry structure is very different from that of a dictionary of current English, in which only present-day senses are covered, and in which the most common meanings or senses are described first. For each word in the OED, the various groupings of senses are dealt with in chronological order according to the quotation evidence, i.e. the senses with the earliest quotations appear first, and the senses which have developed more recently appear further down the entry. In a complex entry with many strands, the development over time can be seen in a structure with several 'branches'.

      JSTOR

      Availability: 
      Resource Type: 
      Description: 

      The JSTOR archive is a searchable database of full-text research journals in a variety of academic disciplines. All articles are full text. Individual journals can be browsed or searched. A search of the entire database can be performed.

      See the number of associated journals for each subject covered on the Search screen (click "Browse by subject").

      The Trent Library subscribes to the Arts & Sciences I, II, III, IV, V, VI, Arts & Sciences Complement, and Life Sciences (Biological Sciences / Health and General Sciences combined) collections. This includes over 1100 journals. These journals include complete backruns, from the first volume to 3-10 years ago (no current volumes). 

      Journals in JSTOR have "moving walls" that define the time lag between the most current issue published and the content available in JSTOR. The majority of journals in the archive have moving walls of between 3 and 5 years, but publishers may elect walls anywhere from zero to 10 years.

      New in 2013!  JSTOR also hosts a "Current Scholarship Program", providing current collections of journals.  Trent subscribes to many individual titles, as well as the University of Chicago Press package of 41 titles.

      JSTOR, a not-for-profit organization, began in 1994 as a pilot project by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to help libraries meet the space and budgetary challenges posed by the growing volume of scholarly research.

      Notes: 

      JSTOR does not need to be searched directly to find articles available within it. When you search another major index (such as Historical Abstracts or Sociological Abstracts) and it identifies a citation to a journal that is available through JSTOR, the Getit_sm_trans service will connect us to the article in JSTOR.

      Available through a CRKN agreement (renewed for 2014-17).

      Coverage: 
      Varies by journal. Begins with volume 1 of each journal and often has a "moving wall" that determines which recent volumes are available.
