Many key biomedical databases for UCL staff and students are now available through a new interface called OvidSP. OvidSP has replaced Silverplatter / WebSPIRS, to provide more up to date references and exciting new search features. From 1st October databases will no longer be available through the Silverplatter / WebSPIRS interface and all saved searches will be lost.
Databases now available through OvidSP include:
- Biotechnology Abstracts
- HAPI (Health and Psychosocial Instruments)
- HMIC (Health Management Information Consortium)
Other resources accessible through OvidSP include a selection of ejournals and ebooks, including PsycBOOKS.
To access databases through the Silverplatter / WebSPIRS interface (before the end of September), go to http://arc.uk.ovid.com/webspirs/start.ws?customer=ucl for PsycINFO, or http://erl-server.ucl.ac.uk/ for the other databases.
To access databases through OvidSP, link through the Library Services webpages at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/Library/database/.
For help with transferring database searches, or for training and support in using the OvidSP interface, please contact your local library staff (see http://www.ucl.ac.uk/library/sites.shtml).

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.
