Filed under Library News:  e-Resources Web Resources

Ovid Technologies, platform for the databases MEDLINE, CINAHL, EMBASE, AMED (and others) has released a major change to its search interface, called OvidSP.

The new user interface features both Basic and Syntax search options. The "Ovid Syntax" mode is closest to the current default search screen in OVID, and includes features like term mapping, focus/explode, and scope notes. The new Basic mode uses natural language searching and relevancy ranking. The results display has also been modified and improved.

The new interface will become the default on February 4th, 2008. You can preview OvidSP now by clicking "Try OvidSP!" at the top of the Ovid database list, or when you are in an Ovid database.

Give it a try, and if you have questions please visit the reference desk, or contact us at ext.22327 or hslib@mcmaster.ca.
