Ditto for us. I just heard about a new product from Elsevier called Mosby's Nursing Index (http://www.mosbysnursingindex.com/). I haven't had a chance to look at it but suppose it might be a reasonable substitute for CINAHL. Catherine _________________________ Catherine M.

We chose to go with OVID because our Reference Librarians were unhappy with parts of the EBSCO interface. EBSCO said they're working on improvements. --Kara Kara Steiniger Manager, Resource Services RAND Library (310) 393-0411 ext. 6296 (310) 451-6920 fax [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> -----Original Message----- From: Medical Libraries Discussion List [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Julie Stielstra Sent: Wednesday, February 07, 2007 10:04 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: OVID / EBSCO / CINAHL Does anyone have any recent info on what the future holds for CINAHL? I'm getting scattered bits on info, and my OVID rep is on vacation. It sounds like OVID will not be licensing CINAHL in the future, but I have conflicting info on the "cutoff" date: 2007? 2008? And do we REALLY have no recourse other than Ebsco? I have had such awful experience with Ebsco (including patently unethical if not illegal dealings that I did not appreciate having to clean up after) that I never ever EVER want to deal with them again. Their CINAHL plus Full Text offerings are lousy with selective indexing, major journals for which full text is either not available or embargoed, and the last time I looked the search functionality was just awful. I do not want to subject my faithful clientele to having to change to this crummy product.... they hate it when they've used it at school, etc. compared to OVID. Boycott, anyone? Sigh. -- Julie Stielstra, MLS Supervisor, Knowledge Resource Library Central DuPage Hospital 25 N Winfield Rd Winfield, IL 60190 phone 630-933-4536 fax 630-933-4530 email [log in to unmask] -------------------- This email message is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain privileged information.
