New interface for Ovid

OvidSP, an upcoming release of a new precision search and discovery platform, will be live and accessible on Thursday, October 25, 2007. USF offers different databases through OVID like MEDLINE and PsychINFO.

Additions and enhancements include:

  • Support of free text, natural language searching
  • Simultaneous searching across all databases, journals, and books
  • Results ranked by relevancy.
  • Multiple search modes: Basic, Find Citation, Subject Search, Search Fields, or SilverPlatter “Classic,” which employs traditional SilverPlatter syntax
  • Improved research workflow tools, search transparency and other features to narrow or broaden your search
  • Improved Alerting tools such as RSS feeds and electronic Table of Contents

To try the new interface, go to MEDLINE or PsychINFO using MetaLib. Once you have accessed the search interface, look for the “Try OVIDSP” link at the top of the screen in the middle.
