SilverPlatter to OVID

Just got this from Amy Prendergast, our sci/tech librarian:
All our SilverPlatter databases have now been moved to the Ovid platform. I have changed the links on the database pages - please let me know if you find any I have missed. The databases concerned are:

Biological Abstracts
GeoRef
Mental Measurements Yearbook
Social Work Abstracts
NASW Clinical Register

Unfortunately we don't seem to be connecting correctly with Social Work Abstracts and NASW Clinical Register but the others should all be working. I have sent a message about the problem to Ovid and hopefully we can get it resolved soon.

When you click on one of the database links, it will take you to a search page. At the top of the page is a box for Search History - you can close this by clicking on "(Click to close)". This makes more room at the top of the screen and enables you to see all the available limits for the database.

I thought the Ovid people were going to wait on that until I got back. Especially since I asked them to because I hadn't discussed it with Amy or you guys. Which I was going to do next week. I'm sorry about that.
