NHS electronic databases are changing

The way that you search NHS electronic databases is changing:

Search 2.0 is replacing Dialog

From 30th June 2008, it will not be possible to search databases via Dialog. A new search tool, NLH Search 2.0, is now available. It allows you to search the following healthcare databases:

PubMed/Medline, CINAHL, Embase, Alternative and Complementary Medicine Database (AMED), British Nursing Index (BNI), PsycINFO, Health Management Information Consortium (HMIC: includes Kings Fund and DH-DATA databases)

Any literature searches you have saved on the Dialog version of the databases WILL NOT transfer to NLH Search 2.0 when Dialog ceases. Please save any searches to your own computer before then. If you need help doing this, please contact us.

Accessing NLH Search 2.0

NLH Search 2.0 is accessible at http://www.library.nhs.uk/ and through the Resources list within MyAthens.
