New HDAS training for UHL staff

Message for University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust staff from UHL Libraries & Information Services


Many of you will have used the Healthcare Databases which are provided to NHS staff by NICE. This service provided access to the main healthcare bibliographic databases and are our recommended way of searching databases like Medline, Embase, PsychInfo and British Nursing Index.

NICE have recently launched a new version of these databases. While all the same information is still available, the search page has been completely redesigned and some of the features work in a different way.

Library: We are offering some times for people to come to the library and have a quick demonstration of the new database system. Times over the next 3 weeks are:

If you cannot make any of these session, and require assistance, or a demonstration, please book on our ‘Literature Searching’ training session, which covers this resource. Times and dates for these courses can be found here: www.uhl-library.nhs.uk/training. You can also come and ask us for advice or assistance. We’ll be happy to assist you however we can.

Quick guide: A quick guide to using the basic functions of the new search interface is attached. It is also available on our web site. This guide has been produced by NICE.


Video guide: NICE have also produced a series of short videos to assist users with using the new search resource. These videos are available on their YouTube channel:   www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRbwbc3dfXUO3IYIun-5ICK-Q059JXtgk
