NewhamCat slightly wobbly on feet

We recently announced the good news that NewhamCat is available from anywhere rather than just on site.

As part of this process we made some changes to the initial start up page. The major change is shifting the onsite quick link for journals into the "Search and Find Answers Section" rather than it having it's own button. There will be more changes as we further develop our online services.

We have been suffering a few teething problems. Apologies if you had difficulty accessing NewhamCat over the past few days. Some technical changes have been applied and we will be monitoring the situation. Let us know if you experience any difficulties - we can always search for you.

The New Books list for December contains over 130 newly acquired titles.

Among these, we have several on diabetes management, eg Therapy for diabetes mellitus and related disorders, & The uncomplicated guide to diabetes complications, both from the American Diabetes Association.

New books for nurses include Stoma care by Burch, and Essential nursing care : a workbook for clinical practice by Lawson & Peate, while our midwifery section has been supplemented by a selection of items, including the 4 volumes of Midwifery Essentials by Helen Baston & others.

In response to a request from the Radiology dept we have purchased the 2 volumes of Final FRCR Part A SBA MCQs by R Proctor.

We buy many relevant non-clinical titles too - this month they include Dignity at work by Rennie Peyton, Writing essays for dummies by Page & Winstanley and How not to worry by C Carr.

The full list contains details of our other new items. As usual, you can check whether we have an item in stock by clicking on NewhamCat.
