Nursing@Ovid Opens Portal Door to Health Resources
Ovid just rolled out its Nursing@Ovid, a new portal that provides access to premium nursing and allied health full-text resources. Nursing@Ovid, which is built on OvidSP’s search and discovery platform architecture, lets users find answers to real-world clinical and research questions quickly from any location, from classroom to library to nursing work stations. The portal is described as an "evolution of a ‘vertical’ solution to scholarly literature searching."
Using Ovid’s new proprietary-controlled vocabulary and associated nursing lexicon, users have access to precise information with a specific focus on nursing and allied health terminology. Nursing@Ovid also offers the natural language processing and flexible search refinements and management workflow tools available in the OvidSP architecture to integrate a range of premium content. Ovid Universal Search technology, which is built into Nursing@Ovid, also extends a user’s search by combining content from non-Ovid platforms and importing search results from content holdings in a user’s research, including PubMed and subscriptions such as CINAHL.
Nursing@Ovid includes the following components:
- Ovid Nursing Subject Thesaurus
- Ovid Nursing Database
- Ovid Universal Search
- Premium Full-Text Resources
- Access to the Nursing Advisor
- Nursing-Specific Search Filters
Subscribers will have access to a core set of content resources that include the bibliographic database and the journal components listed above.
