Training Session Wolters Kluwer (OVID)

Overview of Ovid features

The Higher Education Commission has access to Ovid MEDLINE and an extensive collection of Ovid journals. As time passes the software and content changes. For example, each year, the Ovid MEDLINE database is reloaded to take full advantage of the changes in content and opportunities that the database brings. The Ovid implementation of the database is created for research and for the casual end user. Our implementation adds value to the content, with added value limits and searching options.
