|New Enhanced Electronic Access to Wiley Journals||.||
Effective May 1, 2002, there is University-wide access to the full text of hundreds of journals published by Wiley Interscience, Inc., including such frequently accessed journals as:
110 of the accessible journals are in the biomedical sciences and represent most of the Wiley Interscience titles in these fields. Of these, 49 (45%) are unique to the Library's collections, i.e. they are not available in print. In most cases, the full text is available retrospectively to 1997. The 110 biomedical titles are accessible alphabetically by title, subject and publisher on the Library's website at calder.med.miami.edu. Links from the citation to the corresponding full text articles have been activated in the PubMed and Ovid databases for searches within the UM/JMH I.P. domain. The biomedical titles are being cataloged for the Library's online public access catalog (opac), which provides links directly to the full text journal, as well as from the Ovid citation when the journal in the citation is in the opac.
ClinicalTrials.gov, the database of "approximately 6,200 clinical studies sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, other Federal agencies and the pharmaceutical industry in over 69,000 locations worldwide," as well as 15 other important Web-based resources on clinical trials, are now readily accessible under the 'Clinical Trials' subject heading in the Library's Internet Catalog - calder.med.miami.edu/catalog/.
The National Guideline Clearinghouse, a resource for "up-to-date evidence-based clinical practice guidelines" and related documents, as well as more than 10 other important Web-based resources on practice guidelines, are now readily accessible under the 'Guidelines' subject heading in the Library's Internet Catalog. Previously, these resources and the clinical trials referenced above were included under the Evidence Based Medicine subject heading.
'Medical Calculations,' another new heading in the Internet Catalog, currently features MedCalc 3000, which makes "a variety of common equations, clinical criteria scores and decision trees used in medicine" easy to use. Hundreds of other carefully selected Internet resources in all health related subjects are easily accessible in the Internet Catalog, a good starting point for a relatively broad subject search.
This Guide is a brief overview of the resources and services of the Calder Library and Biomedical Communications. Additional information is available at the Library's web site calder.med.miami.edu, including a virtual tour of the Library, and on the information rack at the Library entrance, and at the Biomedical Communications web site classnet.med.miami.edu and at the service window (1004 RMSB). The faculty and staff of the Department look forward to assisting with your information needs.
