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! 

Link to CINAHL Complete 


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!
