New Resource - Global Health
The Bio-Medical Library has initiated a subscription to the database Global Health. Global Health brings together the resources of two internationally renowned databases - the Public Health and Tropical Medicine (PHTM) database, previously produced by the Bureau of Hygiene and Tropical Diseases (BHTD), and the human health and diseases information extracted from CAB ABSTRACTS. Over 16,000 serial sources from more than 130 countries are scanned regularly for inclusion in the Global Health database, to produce approximately 25,000 new entries per year Coverage is from 1973-present.
Global Health is an Ovid database and can be accessed from the 'Health Indexes/Databases' section on our home page by clicking on the letter 'G.'
One tip for searching Global Health -- make sure you check the box called 'map term to subject heading.' As of this writing, the default way to search Global Health is with this box unchecked. I've asked our technical staff to change this but in the interim you'll have to check this box yourself so your serch term can be mapped against the CAB thesaurus.
Please send me any feedback about this new resource.
