New Look

Dialog Datastar has been tweaking the service it offers. From this Saturday (14th April) you'll see a number of changes when you log into Medline with your Athens password.

The main change will be the wording on the tick boxes below the search box. These will be simplified so that "documents relating to humans", for example, will now just say "humans".

The second big change will be the addition of so-called "Haynes Filters" or Clinical Queries. These are pre-set searches that allow you to search quickly for therapy, diagnosis, aetiology or prognosis.

Don't forget the help function (top of the search page on the dark background) and the search tips (over the search box). The other source of help, advice and guidance is, as ever, your library.
