Changes to NHS databases

From April 2008 the online databases that you used to access via Dialog Datastar (Medline, Embase, CINAHL, BNI, AMED, PsycINFO, Kings Fund and DH-Data) will change.

You'll still need to use an NHS ATHENS password to access these databases, but the search page will look completely different and be accessed via the National Library for Health.

  • Check our training timetable for information about drop-in sessions to see and try out the new interface.

  • Take a copy of any regular alerts or saved searches you use - these will not transfer to the new system, and will need to be set up afresh.

  • Speak to Isla Kuhn for more information and support.

The new system comes into operation on 1st April. More information will be sent out in the next couple of weeks but be prepared, contact the library.
