Hospital access to full text online journal articles
- 0Nov 18, '11 by llg GuideDoes your hospital provide all staff members with online access to full text journal articles? If so, what platform/service are you using ... EBSCO? CINAHL? OVID? etc.
Does everyone have access to all of the resources or just people in certain positions?
Can you get most journal articles in full text or do you just get abstracts for most of them?
How happy are you with the services you are getting?
My hospital is looking at switching/upgrading its current access and I would like to know what others are doing.

Since I also work as an adjunct faculty, I use EBSCO from the university more than Ovid.
Everything is full text, or full text can be requested for no charge.
- 0Mar 28, '13 by sjt9721Our subscription to Medline Complete and CINAHL Plus with Full Text is through EBSCOhost and provided at the corporate level. (I work for the large, for-profit company with a 3-letter acronym.) We have good luck with these databases - we can access the account from non-network computers and EBSCO has an app so we can access it from our smartphones as well.
If EBSCO doesn't have the full text.....We have several nurses in school so many opt to access their university's online library. As a facility, we are a part of the DOCLINE system - so I can enter citation information and purchase a copy of the needed article for $9-$12.
Let me know if you have any questions about our resources.
