Scopus: A Database for Everyone  external link

Scopus is reportedly “the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources”. Half of the Scopus content comes from outside the U.S., making its over 65 million citations an essential destination for resources in all disciplines such as medical, scientific, technical, social sciences, arts and humanities.  Scopus includes all of the journals indexed in Embase, Compendex (Engineering), and MEDLINE. Embase is a very large global biomedical database that covers nearly 3000 journals not included in MEDLINE.

Scopus is especially robust if you are looking for drug literature. Even if you’ve searched in PubMed, Scopus gives you a more comprehensive return when searching for information about pharmaceuticals or medical devices.

The Scopus database also provides powerful citation analysis tools for articles, authors, institutions and journal metrics.

Alternatively, access Scopus from Ebling’s Top Databases column from on and off campus (for those with a NetID).

If you are wondering how Scopus may help with your research or clinical practice or how it compares to other databases such as PubMed or Web of Science, please contact us.

Use Your NetID for Library Login  external link

As of Monday, January 17, UW-Madison students, faculty and staff must use their NetIDs to login to library services.

Your 11-digit UW-Madison ID number will no longer give you access to resources. This change brings the library system into compliance with campus security policies.

If you need help activating your NetID, placing a request for a campus item or ordering an interlibrary loan, check out our video tutorials.

Questions? You can contact Ebling staff at 608-262-2020 or askebling@hsl.wisc.edu or click here for more information.

Journal Access Update  external link

Beginning January 1st, Ebling Library will have fewer journals that you will have immediate access to, due to the cancellation of those titles.

In the health sciences, yearly price increases for subscriptions to journals and databases range from 4% to 25%. The budget allocation for Ebling Library collections has not kept up with the rapidly rising costs of subscriptions. To stay within the collections budget for Fiscal Year 2016-2017, it was necessary for the Ebling Library to reduce subscription costs by about $200,000.

Andrew Osmond, Information Resources Coordinator at the Ebling Library, has analyzed data about use, price, and cost-per-use of journal and database subscriptions. This data along with consortial purchasing commitments and existing publisher agreements have been considered when making cancellations. For more information and a list of cancelled journals, click here.

We know the importance of having access to articles; Ebling staff will continue to facilitate the delivery of articles to faculty staff and students. This streamlined process of interlibrary loan will have the necessary article to you, often within 24-48 hours. To start the process of obtaining a needed article, click here.

We’re happy to discuss journal renewals and other resources that are purchased by the library. Our contact information is provided below. Thank you.
