Result of the trial for Pier Professional Journals

At the end of last year we had a trial of the complete collection of Journals from Pier Professional. Pier Professional publishes journals in healthcare, social care and allied fields. There are 23 journals in the collection. Feedback was positive and a decision was made to take out a subscription for the whole collection.  New titles include Journal of Children’s Services, Mental Health and Social Inclusion, Journal of Integrated Care and Journal of Assistive Technologies. Online access back to the first issue is available. The entire collection can be searched as a full text database or each journal can be browsed separately. All titles have been added to the library catalogue and the collection can be accessed here. At the end of 2011 we will review our usage statistics and make a decision whether to renew in 2012.
