Trials Available for New EBSCOhost Databases: CINAHL Complete and MEDLINE Complete

University Libraries (USD) and the Wegner Center Library have a limited-time trial of two new EBSCOhost databases. Please try them and let us know what you think!

CINAHL Complete: CINAHL Complete provides access to 1,370 full-text nursing journals and indexes 5,238 nursing journals. Currently the Wegner Library has access to CINAHL with Full Text which provides access to 603 full-text nursing journals and indexes 3,083 nursing journals. CINAHL Complete also provides access to over 130 evidence-based care sheets and over 150 continuing education modules.  Although CINAHL Complete provides more access, we have also noticed that there is a fairly hefty embargo on many journals meaning that the most current 12 to 18 months of articles in some journals are not available. Nevertheless, we would like people to try this resource and let us know what they think!

MEDLINE Complete: MEDLINE Complete provides access to over 2,400 full-text medical journals.

Please write the Wegner Library at wegner@usd.edu and tell us what you think of these resources!

NEW! Online DSM-5 now available!


Access to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition, is now available for all Partner groups. This is the newest edition of the most comprehensive resource used by health professionals, social workers, and forensic and legal specialists to diagnose and classify mental disorders.
This online book can be found in the library's catalog and through this link.
The American Psychiatric Association provides this online text, along with other online resources, through its Web-based portal, PsychiatryOnline. Also available are 9 other online psychiatric texts such as Gabbard's Treatments of Psychiatric Disorders, online journals such as Academic Psychiatry and Psychiatric News, several APA clinical practice guidelines, and several self-assessment tools for board certification (self-paced examinations in psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, substance abuse treatment, psychopharmacology, forensic psychiatry, and psychosomatic medicine). There is also an APA "Book of the Month" for short-term viewing before purchase.

Requesting input on library study rooms

The Wegner Library will be asking for input on patrons' needs for the upstairs study rooms. Currently there are surveys in the rooms. Please fill out a survey and leave them in the supplied basket in each room. We appreciate your thoughts as we upgrade our study areas!

Change to ILLiad!


The system for ordering full-text articles and books, ILLiad, has undergone an update. The link for ILLiad needs to be changed tohttps://usd.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/WS$/logon.html  (an "s" was added to the http). If you have ILLiad bookmarked in your browser, please redirect your browser to the new ILLiad. Please feel free to call us at 357-1400 if you have any questions regarding this information.
