CINAHL Plus with Full Text: Database Trial from Ebsco

No Comments »

Ebsco has provided UMass Lowell with a 30-day free trial to their CINAHL Plus with Full Text database. The trial is available until 31 March 2011.

Unlike the university’s current subscription to CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature), the Plus with full-text edition offers complete full-text coverage to more than 770 journals (with current issue access included) along with over 275 full-text books.

CINAHL Plus provides indexing for more than 4,500 journals from the fields of nursing and allied health, with coverage dating as far back as 1937. It offers complete coverage of English language nursing journals and publications from the National League for Nursing and the American Nurses’ Association, covering subjects of nursing, biomedicine, health sciences librarianship, alternative/complementary medicine, consumer health and 17 allied health disciplines. In addition, access to health care books, nursing dissertations, selected conference proceedings, standards of practice, educational software, audiovisuals and book chapters, as well as Evidence-Based Care Sheets are also provided.

Access to this trial is available through the library’s  New Database Trials and Subscriptions webpage.
