New: EndNote and RefWorks Tip

Do you have a long list of citations and wish there was an easy way to put them into your EndNote library or RefWorks account?  Now there is! Use the Citation finder feature from HubMed, an alternative interface to PubMed.  Simply copy and paste the text from a bibliography or reference list into Citation Finder.  HubMed will quickly find your citations (if they are in PubMed) and then allow you to export them to EndNote or RefWorks.  It worked like a charm when I tried it!  Please let us know if you have any questions about using Citation Finder, EndNote, or RefWorks.

New Look for OVID

A "Try OVID SP" link is now appearing on the top of every page in our OVID databases.  Click the link to try out the new  OVID interface.  The current version of OVID will soon be retired (in the next month or two) and will be replaced by OVID SP.  One potentially cool new feature in OVID SP is the ability to sort results by "SCORE" or relevancy ranking.  According to them, the new OVID is calculating relevancy based on: "how many search concepts appear in the record, how often the concepts appear in the record, and how rare the terms are in the database."  Sounds like a more google-like search.  Please let us know if you have any comments about the new OVID interface.
