Clinical Library Database Ovid Is Now Available Systemwide
October 7, 2021 | 1 min. to read
As part of an ongoing effort to standardize library services and support across the health system, Northwestern Medicine has acquired a systemwide Ovid license for physicians and clinicians, which went into effect September 1.
Ovid, an online medical research database, provides access to resources in health science. The NM Ovid subscription includes MEDLINE, Cochrane Systematic Reviews, JBI Evidence-Based Practice resources, and access to more than 300 full-text journals.
This resource helps support research, evidence-based practice and professional development activities for all physicians and clinicians, including those who do not hold university faculty or staff affiliations.
As part of the NM Academy, the Library Services team has expanded to provide research assistance and facilitate access to Ovid and other online resources at a system level.
“We’re pleased to roll this service out systemwide,” says Nora St. Peter, manager of Library Services. “Our team of librarians and library assistants are here to help connect physicians and clinicians to the resources they need.”
Library Services staff are prepared to assist physicians and clinicians with:
Literature searches and support
24/7 access to knowledge-based resources and electronic databases
Document delivery services
See what’s available through Ovid by visiting NM Interactive > Resources > Education & References > Ovid (login required) or the Ovid website (login using NM username and password).
