Sunrise Seminar 7 AM !!!! EBSCOHOST CINAHL Demonstration

EBSCOHOST hosted a demo of their CINAHL databases(I believe we currently get access to the "basic" CINAHL from NCLIVE but not CINAHL with full text.) CINAHL Full Text has 579 full text journals but some of them are embargoed for up to twelve months by the publishers. CINAHL has also started indexing most journals cover-to-cover rather than selectively and they are also indexing abstracts from proceedings. 230 new titles have been added over the past two years.

EBSCOHOST has added three new features:
- immediate TOC for 800+ Nursing and Allied Health journals
- links to full text also available from these TOCs
- can be searched simultaneously with CINAHL

Searchable Cited References
- 1,147 (800 of this are Nursing Journals) journals from 2000 to the present
- this number is compared to 66 Nursing Journals indexed in ISI's WOS

both of these features are available free with either CINAHL subscription

Nursing Reference Center
- this will be in beta testing later this summer
- it will have 2200 care sheets and lessons
- 700+ legal cases
- 300+ research instruments
- 300+ CEU modules

this looks promising and might be something for our nurses to look at when more information is available about pricing.

NCLive does give us CINAHL with Full Text, so don't pay more!!
