CABI Health Archive Comes to EBSCOhost

EBSCOhost (www.ebscohost.com) received an infusion of medical know-how, thanks to a deal with CABI.

The publisher’s Global Health Archive database, which includes more than 800,000 records on public health, tropical and communicable diseases, nutrition, helminthology, entomology, and mycology, is now accessible via the service. A companion to Global Health, a public health database already featured in EBSCOhost that includes more than 1.2 million records, Global Health Archive will provide a global picture of international health research over time.

The database features research carried out over the course of several decades on topics including bioterrorism, disease control, patent protection, food security and malnutrition, and the effects of economic development on health. Its goal is to put international and public health problems in a historical context by reviving research that otherwise might have been lost to time.

While many of the database’s records may be old, CABI has taken steps to increase accessibility for modern audiences, reindexing the database to complement the current Global Health file. Global Health Archive will also take advantage of EBSCOhost’s features, allowing users to directly link to full-text articles in other EBSCOhost databases, other materials in a given library’s collection, and EBSCO’s Image Collection. In addition, folder, citation, bookmarking, email, and RSS alert tools will be available for use.
