Collection spotlight: New Health Sciences databases

A collection spotlight

We’re in the process of adding new resources to support the upcoming Health Sciences courses due to begin in September 2017.  The databases below are available now.

AMED

This alternative medicine database is designed for physicians, therapists, medical researchers and clinicians looking to learn more about alternative treatments.

Many of the journals included in AMED are not indexed by other biomedical sources. The content provided in AMED is produced by the Health Care Information Service of the British Library, which provides a renowned collection of scientific, technical and medical (STM) information. The scope of coverage within this resource is mainly European and is updated with new content on a monthly basis.

SPORTDiscus with Full Text

This database is the premier source of literature for sports and sports medicine journals, providing full-text content from many well-known and respected sources. It is an essential tool for health professionals, researchers and students, providing extensive coverage in the areas of fitness, health and sport studies.

This authoritative database contains full text for many of the most used journals in the SPORTDiscus index with no embargo. Of those, more than 500 are not found with full text in any version of Academic Search, Health Source or Biomedical Reference Collection. With full-text coverage dating back to 1930, SPORTDiscus with Full Text is the definitive research tool for all areas of sports and sports medicine literature.
