New Database Trial Available: Embase

By Sarah Hughes

 

Falvey Library is pleased to offer a summer trial to Elsevier’s Embase. This science database provides comprehensive coverage of biomedical information with particularly strong reporting for information related to drug reactions, toxicology, medical device data, and evidence-based medicine. Coverage starts from 1947 to present day, and all articles are indexed with both MeSH and Emtree.

The database is useful to all levels of expertise in searching. A simple search can be conducted using basic, natural language, or experienced database users can conduct a more extensive search. For example, Embase is an excellent database to consider when conducting a systematic literature search, like a Scoping or Systematic Review.

Another nice feature of Embase is the PICO (Patient, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome) question search builder. As nursing students and faculty know, it is critical to create a solid clinical questions when seeking evidence-based research. By having pre-populated fields available, Embase makes constructing a PICO question incredibly easy.

Trial Access to the Online Egyptological Bibliography Now Available

By Jutta Seibert

For a limited time, Falvey Memorial Library has access to the Online Egyptological Bibliography, the premier research tool of Egyptologists.

It indexes all types of publications in the field, including journal articles, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings. The content reflects the multilingual nature of the Egyptological community and abstracts may be in English, French, or German.

Modern records include digital object identifiers and links to the publications. The coverage of the bibliography extends back to 1822.

Published by Oxford University’s Griffith Institute, in cooperation with the International Association of Egyptologists, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, and the Universität Heidelberg, the Bibliography is the successor to the Annual Egyptological Bibliography, which was founded in 1947. It also includes Christine Beinlich-Seeber’s Bibliographie Altägypten and records from the Aigyptos database.

The Bibliography uses the Trlit CG Times font for the display of Egyptian transliteration characters, and recommends the Mozilla Firefox web browser for the correct display of the phonetic Unicode characters.

Trial access is available until February 5, 2020.
