Trial of CINAHL (Cumulative index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature) database

This is a reminder that there is only two weeks left of the library’s free trial on CINAHL Complete. Please give it a try and send us your feedback at library or x5161.

The library is conducting a trial of the CINAHL database starting now through ending September 9 and we need your help.

The version we are testing is CINAHL Complete which includes a fair amount of full text. If we decide to purchase CINAHL, this may not be the version we go with.

Please give it a good try and send us feedback as to your experience regarding its usefulness. For example, does it give you more than you can get on Ovid Medline or Nursing@Ovid?

This feedback will be instrumental in determining whether or not we try to subscribe to it.

Access to CINAHL is at http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=uid&profile=ehost&user=s5033861trial&password=trial

· Advanced Searching Techniques

· CINAHL (Combines Basic & Advanced Searching)
