An Eresource Advent: Day 6

December 6, 2017

Today’s entry turns to a highly specialised CINAHL (the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature) which is an essential resource for our nursing students, as well as those studying health-related topics and even subject such as sports rehabilitation. Enabling access to over 600 full-text journals, CINAHL includes research on topic such as aging, mental health, community nursing, healthcare management, a range of nursing research topics, physiotherapy, paediatric and psychiatric care. CINAHL is a specialised database, and we have provided a video tutorial, accessible via the A to Z list of resources, to help you get the most out of it.

ScienceDirect update (a small glimmer of hope…)

August 4, 2017

Finally some positive news on ScienceDirect. Although the problem with accessing PDFs has yet to be resolved, I have been supplied with a very simple interim measure that will allow you to download PDFs as you wish.
