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.
