Changes to paper journal collection

Message from NICE EvidenceDSCF0274

NICE and Elsevier have announced that access to The Lancet (electronic) will continue to be made available for a further 12 months (1 January 2015 – 31 December 2015).

In order to secure equitable access to The Lancet we have had to negotiate the removal of access to the print version of the journal.

You will no longer receive a print copy of the Lancet from 1 January 2015.

The Staff Library will however, still be accepting those paper journals which we receive as donations, including HSJ.

 

 

New ejournals available

Our leaner meaner journal collection

DSCF0274As part of ongoing work to streamline our processes wherever possible, this month saw the successful update of our current paper journals and their details using the ‘link resolver’.  This is the ‘behind the scenes’ mechanism which seamlessly enables anyone searching the NHS Evidence databases or HDAS for a particular article, to see a list of possible suppliers ie: the paper and/or electronic holdings which we subscribe to or have as part of the NHS England core content deal.

Due to our move in March to much smaller accommodation, the reduction in our collection from over 160 journals down to just 14 vividly illustrates how much the library relocation has cost in terms of resources.

Our paper journals now comprise:

ARCHIVES OF DISEASE IN CHILDHOOD  (2012)
