Learning Services have been offered an exciting new trial until August 2013. We already have access to the Cinahl database, for our Nursing and Social Care students, but we have recently been upgraded to Cinahl+ with full text.

This essentially means a larger database with more coverage, more full text and archives dating back to the 1930s. It indexes over 5000 journals, with full text for 770.

CINAHL Plus with Full Text also contains:

• Research Instruments

• Evidence-Based Care Sheets

• Quick Lessons & Search Strategies

• Continuing Education Modules

• Clinical Innovations

• Critical Paths

• Drug Records

• Clinical Trials

• Nursing Dissertations

However, to fully assess the worth of this database, we really need student input. So if you think this is a valuable resource, please get in touch and let us know! We’ll be assessing usage figures throughout the year, with a view to making a decision in the summer.
