Ovid Enhances E-Books Platform

Ovid Technologies ( announced that it has added major enhancements and features to its electronic books platform, Books@Ovid. It now lets users search a collection of core clinical texts using new intuitive search and browse features—such as natural language search capability, relevance ranking, and back-of-the-book index browsing.

New features include a single, expandable table of contents that integrates the book and chapter tables of contents and is always visible in full-text view. Tables and figures are identified separately within the table of contents for easy integration into the user's work. Users can browse by subject as well as title. When browsing by title, links are organized alphabetically for easy navigation. Enhanced searching allows users to limit results by specialty (nursing, cardiology, etc.) as well as book type for further precision (e.g., comprehensive texts, drug manuals, or clinical handbooks). Search results are ranked by relevance. Books@Ovid provides the most current content that is available, and content updates are flagged in the table of contents and within text for easy identification.

Books@Ovid is now fully integrated with Journals@Ovid and Ovid bibliographic databases, thereby giving users the ability to search across the entire Ovid content repository as well as access to the full range of Ovid tools, including ask-a-librarian and personal accounts, as well as Ovid's linking to full-text journals, bibliographic records, and external Web resources.
