I posted earlier this month that Ovid launched a new version of OvidSP. The new OvidSP will be going live fairly soon, so it would probably be a good idea to be prepared before the switch.
Here are some ways that you can prepare for the switch:
- Go to the OvidSP Resource Center and click on the Training Center tab. Ovid is offering new training sessions covering the enhancements made to OvidSP. They have web-based instructor sessions as well as online tutorials.
- Quick Reference Cards, check it out online and order some for your library. They are also great to use as a starting point for customizing your own library specific Ovid search cards.
- If you are looking for a quick comparison of Old OvidSP and New OvidSP there is a good side by side PDF available.
- My Projects is a new feature in OvidSP and from what I can tell it is similar to PubMed’s MyNCBI but unlike MyNCBI you can store the full text in MyProjects.
I plan on taking an more in-depth look at the new changes made to OvidSP within the next week or two and I will write more the changes at that time.
