Ovid Showcases Ovid Universal Search™ and Nursing@Ovid at London’s Online Information 2008 Conference


Visitors to Stand #518 Can Hear In-booth Presentations on These New Technology Tools and Get The Latest OvidSP and Content News

New York, NY - Ovid, part of Wolters Kluwer Health and a global leader in the development and delivery of customizable electronic research information for the medical, scientific and academic markets, will be highlighting Ovid Universal Search, its new premium cross-platform search solution, and Nursing@Ovid, its new nursing & allied health portal, at the 2008 Online Information conference, which will be held beginning today through December 4th at London’s Olympia exhibition center. Conference attendees can also learn about new ebook offerings and new current awareness tools for the EMBASE bioscience database. Ovid is exhibiting at Stand #518.

“We introduced Ovid Universal Search and Nursing@Ovid to the market in early October and we’re eager to hear firsthand feedback from key customers at this year’s Online Conference,” said Karen Abramson, President & CEO of Ovid. “Both products have been developed based on direct feedback on what users are looking for to improve their research productivity. Nursing@Ovid, which includes Ovid Universal Search as a core component, is our first foray into ‘vertical’ search solutions—specific tools and interfaces dedicated to specific user groups or professional practice areas.”

Ovid Universal Search, an optional, premium feature, delivers cross-platform content searching all within OvidSP. Users can simultaneously search all of their institution’s subscribed content, whether it’s available on OvidSP, free sites, or other subscription platforms. They can take advantage of many of OvidSP’s search and workflow tools to refine, manage, and save results retrieved through Ovid Universal Search.

Built on the architecture of OvidsP, Nursing@Ovid streamlines access to nursing and allied health full text for use in practice, research, education, and administration. It’s powered by the proprietary Ovid Nursing Subject Thesaurus, a controlled vocabulary that focuses on real-world nursing and allied health terminology. Nursing@Ovid subscribers receive access to the Ovid Nursing Database, based on the nursing and allied health subset of Ovid MEDLINE®, nursing-related journals, as well as access to the Nursing Advisor, a clinical decision support tool from Wolters Kluwer Health’s, Clinical Solutions’ business unit.

Ovid continues to expand its increasingly robust portfolio of ebooks from the world’s leading science, medical, and nursing publishers. Conference attendees can learn more about the more than 550 high-quality titles loaded on Books@Ovid this year, adding to our extensive list of premier reference ebooks from leading publishers like LWW, Springer + Science Business Media, Oxford University Press, and Jones & Bartlett. Ovid also is introducing the LWW Definitive Archive, an extensive collection of backfiles of 233 journals from LWW, the world’s leading medical, nursing, and health science publisher. Coverage dates for the journal content in this set typically begin with Vol 1, Issue 1 and end with the final journal issue of 2003.

Ovid has expanded its offering of EMBASE, a leading biomedical database, with the addition of new daily updates as well as the upcoming EMBASE Daily Alerts, daily packages of un-indexed citations and abstracts scheduled for later inclusion in the front file EMBASE database, which will be available later in December.
